The "Painted Ladies" are the city's brightly painted Victorian houses, particularly on "Post Card Row" on Steiner Street near Alamo Square Park. The late 19th century homes burst into multi colors after World War II and have been used as a backdrop for movies, television shows and ads. The architectural term was first used in the 1970s in San Francisco and has grown to include similarly painted Victorian and Edwardian houses in other cities.
