You’ve Tried The Rest, Now Try The Best

January 17, 2013

For the first time in recent memory, I was in North Beach during a weekday.

I ventured to this strange diagonal land to finally meet @SF_Historian who is now on Twitter and fucking KILLING it.

(Yup, Front Street once fronted the water.)

Alas this warehouse had yet to be constructed for the 1853 Coast Survey and isn’t (yet) visible on Pastmapper:

Though you can see it on the 1859 Coast Survey map (which I hope to Pastmap soon):

(Looks like Vallejo Wharf consumed Cunningham’s Wharf.)

But fret not, those in SESF, @SF_Historian is a pan-chronofriscan:

(But let’s face it, anyone who has a Sanborn maps avatar is an automatic follow.)

    God, I miss Golden Boy pizza. I used to live at the top of Vallejo (4 blocks from the warehouse in the pictures) and GB was a regular stop. And yes, SF_Historian is awesome.

    if you click though to the source photo for the 19th/church shot it appears that church on dolores had an extention to the south that was removed at some point.
