The colorful murals lining Ross Alley hint at the colorful characters that once roamed SF’s oldest alleyway, which has been known variously as Mexico, Spanish and Manila St after the ladies who once staffed its notorious back-parlor brothels. More recently, Ross Alley has been occasionally pimped out to Hollywood production companies as the picturesque backdrop for sequels like Karate Kid II and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom .
