This incredible vintage t-shirt is from the legendary San Francisco leather bar known as Folsom Prison. The bar opened in 1973 and was located at 1898 Folsom Street in the Castro District. This bar had a horseshoe-shaped front and was known for having after-hours parties including S&M and bondage. The building was torn down in 1985.
Folsom Street in San Francisco has a rich LGBT history and has been a part of the city's leather community since the mid 60s. Folsom Prison was just one of many leather bars located on Folsom Street and by the 1970s the "Miracle Mile" as it was nicknamed, was home to nearly 30 different leather bars including Febe's and The Stud bar. Folsom street is also home to an annual BDSM street fair which was started by housing activists and community organizers who wanted to enhance the visibility of the leather community and provide a means of fundraising, in the wake of the city's attempted redeveloping of the South Market area.
