Recall overhearing (1959-1961) about "the drags" out on "the Great." In the Lincoln H.S. cafeteria. Before it was renamed Brotherhood Way that street (Stanley Drive?) had only one house of worship, the Catholic Church, There was a trickle of a stream on that side of the street, downhill from the church. flowing in the direction of Lake Merced. In 1954-55 there were guppies, frogs, and garter snakes. Coming from Park Merced, where we attended Lake Merced School, a few of us would scramble down the hillside between the bushes, crawl through a breach in the chainlink fence, and hurry across the street. Then down the embankment to explore.
