Paul Trick/L'Orangerie

[Post Followup] [San Francisco History Board]

I am looking for any information i can find on Paul N. Trick, proprietor at 1709 Polk St. (L'Orangerie card and gift shop) from the early sixties into the 80s.

Paul was my uncle, but he kept very much to himself. My father, George was his brother and they had a sister, Joan, in southern california. The siblings were not close, largely due to an abusive stepfather, Owen Caldwell. I believe they all had ptsd and they each dealt with it in their own way.

Recently i learned that my sister, who's children are all adults now, simply omitted Paul's story from the family history. I am piecing things together for one of her kids, because I remember Paul and his story heroically. He overcame in his way, and now, I want to know as much as I can learn about that.

Thank you for considering this query and perhaps forwarding it to someone who knows the history of that block of Polk St. or whatever action you think might yield information.
