Dashiell Hammett's SF Apartment

Dashiell Hammet is thought to have lived in the big building to the left, 891 Post, Apartment #401 while a resident of San Francisco. As best I can tell, #401 would be located on the top floor in the right corner. Apparently, this is also where the character Sam Spade lived in The Maltese Falcon.

I don't think we'll get to tour the actual apartment on our Hammett Walk. However, local mystery author Michael Coggins was lucky enough to get a walk-thru, and he's posted pictures on his website.
