International Settlement (San Francisco)
The International Settlement was a red-light district in San Francisco, California, USA. Contrary to its name, it was neither international nor a settlement; rather, it served as a place of prostitution and drinking in the 1940s. It disappeared around the 50s and today the only traces that remains are the pillars that held the sign above Pacific Avenue at Montgomery Street (see photo, linked below). Today the neighborhood is populated with interior design firms, law offices and other legitimate businesses. The area is also included on the historical Barbary Coast Trail in San Francisco.
