Narrative: The Poodle Dog Restaurant was a major San Francisco landmark for decades (see our story bank for the details of its long history).

A beautifully illustrated brochure was published in the 1890s to celebrate its fiftieth anniversary.

Inside the brochure’s cover is this full-size representation of Ami, the owners’ beloved poodle dog who gave the restaurant its name. Ami stands proudly against the background of the Golden Gate as it looked before the bridge was built.
