I wondered whether the baseball park in San Francisco (below) was the famous Candlestick Park. Well, as jyankee rightly pointed out, it wasn’t.

Even though Candlestick Park was the home of the San Francisco Giants for many years, it is now the home of the San Francisco 49ers American football team, so it is no longer a ballpark.

But the reason I think that Candlestick Park is famous is that it is the place for the very last Beatles concert on August 29th 1966.
