Eric Fischer has let loose with the historo-scanner once again.
1970: A line to see the brand new shiny 24th St BART station (looking south at the SW escalator — the side towards Valencia and 25th).
Mmmmm, Shoe Cafeteria!
Kidding. Actually a shoe store.
And 2829 is today’s Foot Locker. (Seriously.)
Note the miniature trees up on Bernal alongside the AT&T microwave antenna.
And here we see a map of BART before the loss of the Geary Line that would have gone to 25th Ave. (This is the part of the post where you get to yell AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGRGGGGGGGRGRGGGGGGHGHHHHHHHH.)
Eric notes that the Marin line that would have come in over the Golden Gate Bridge didn’t actually connect into the rest of the system — you would have had to transfer at Kearny St Station, next to Montgomery.
As Eric notes, in the 1961 aerial shots you can see where they were literally destroying the Western Addition.
1978: bikes on BART. Eric notes that bikes were only allowed on the last car then.
Reader @srlawton notes bike restrictions were tighter then:
This is pretty much what I look like when I ride BART. (1978, as if you couldn’t tell.)
