From coast to coast, San Francisco is widely known for cultural influences, with our many premier museums housing some of the finest exhibits in the nation. The Legion of Honor Museum is showcasing Pulp Fashion by Isabelle de Borchgrave held over a few short days, due to its popularity.

The New York Social Diary reported Tatiana Sorokko, Russian model and couture collector, with friends, including Jeanne Lawrence and curator Martin Chapman, toured the exhibit and afterward ate lunch at the café operated by McCalls. Here are some of their experiences as told by Jeanne.

The California Palace of the Legion of Honor Museum was a gift from the Spreckels, the sugar family.

The Legion of Honor is situated atop the cliffs in Lincoln Park, with incredible ocean views.

There is a lovely café with an outdoor garden where visitors were basking in the sunshine.

Jeanne Lawrence, Tatiana Sorokko, Denise Hale, and curator Martin Champman enjoyed lunch in the bright and sunny museum café.
