Kramer Place is just off Greenwich near Grant and it connects to Jack Micheline Place. Apparently it has been there for quite awhile. It's listed in the 1910 San Francisco City Guide
Its block long distance drops precipitously to a dead-end. There is barely enough room on either side for one car to negotiate the street, let alone try to pass. Since it is so steep, anyone going down it fast is at risk of running smack into the solid wall at the end.
It is easy to walk right by Kramer and never notice it, but it captured Dede's imagination and inspired her to paint. Kramer is, in fact, a geometric wonder. The horizontal facings on the sides of the buildings direct your attention to the spires of the National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi in the distance. Artistic shapes abound all along the street. There are ventilation stacks extending two and three stories toward the sky. Balconies on the mid-street building and the windows on the remainder present a myriad of rectangular shapes and sizes. Finally there is a salmon pink stairway on the building at the bottom of the street just begging to be photographed.
