RARA-AVIS: Hammett Alert: Dedication of 891 Post as a literary landmark

From: Mark Coggins ( coggins@immortalgame.com)

As part of the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the publication of THE MALTESE FALCON, an organization known as the "Friends of the Library, USA" placed a plaque on the apartment building at 891 Post where Hammett lived when he wrote FALCON.

I was lucky enough to attend the dedication ceremony and also had a chance to tour the apartment (#401) that Hammett scholars believe to be his (and Spade's).

There's more information and a photo tour of the apartment at this link:
