SF Infrastructure Baby Pictures

November 29, 2010

Awwww, cute! Sutro and the Transamerica Pyramid’s baby pictures!

Via SFPL and Transamerica. (Is anyone else having trouble with the SFPL photo archive?)

You can also follow them on Twitter — @SutroTVTower and @TransAmericaBdg — there’s some serious sibling rivalry going on there.

TransAm: I’m older.
Sutro: Well, I’m taller.
TransAm: He’s cheating by standing on a hill!
Sutro: At least I’m not standing on a boat.


Though I love the reference to the Niantic. Touché, Sutro, touché.

Anyway.  The SF Anthropomorphized list is getting rather extensive. (And rather neurotic.)

So in 1973 Sutro had (or was supposed to have) white lights running up its legs, but neighbors complained and we were left with just the red aviation safety lights — if this was the case does anyone have pictures?  Those would be awesome, I want them turned back on.

Also, a period quip: “Sutro Tower is the packing case that the TransAmerica Pyramid came in.”

    I have time-lapse Super8 footage of the building underneath 101 California being torn down, so there. In the pics above, it looks like there should be some baby pics of the Embarcadero as well.

    Baby pics are all well and good, but the gawky adolescent phase is just so awkward to witness. :-P (Srsly, thanks for the bébé infrastructure shots.)
