Postcards From Barbary Lane

Mona Ramsey - Postcards From Barbary Lane

Mona Ramsey’s cosmic chants are interrupted as an old friend phones to say he’s heading to Russian Hill. I love Chloe Webb’s expression here as she plays the spaced-out hippy designer…

This is the first in an occasional series of mementoes from Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City, with visuals from the TV series and quotes from his books. Everyone has fond memories of the show from way back, and these are imaginary messages from 28 Barbary Lane. The vintage look illustrates the history of Tales which stretches all the way back to the 70s.

The cool thing about these is you can actually send them as postcards (by email of course) to your favourite Tales fan. Stay tuned for more Postcards soon.

  1. Great idea! You’re really bringing those characters to life. It makes me wish we could find them and live there for a while. 🙂

    • Yes, it’s my happy place and it would be the perfect escape… two tickets please! One way only 😉
