The Last Outpost

The Last Outpost, originally uploaded by deanv41.

The traffic posts in alleys downtown give away the heritage of each neighborhood. In Chinatown they are red. In Jackson Square and the between-zones they are black. In North Beach, they are the stripes of the Italian flag: red, white & green.
Here, at Bannam and Green Street, i came across a freshly minted single star & stripes, which might recall the USA, but more likely a new colony, a Republic still being born, West of the West.
