Photo Taken in San Francisco at Same Time and Place as a Frame From the Film 'Vertigo' in 1957

The story began over at the vintage photography blog Shorpy, where a member named Ron Yungul submitted a vintage photograph that was captured by his late father on the hills of San Francisco, California in August, 1957.

By amazing coincidence, the photograph was taken at the same place at around the same time when Alfred Hitchcock’s iconic film Vertigo was shot here in 1957. The photograph shows almost exact the same scene from the movie with the same cars lined up along the curb.
