Yesterday in Bancroft Library in box 6, F-G, of "Sutro Correspondence 1853-1915, C-B 465", a letter from Mr. Gerke to Adolph Sutro of 1897 describes pieces of property at "49th ave. and Great Highway and 18 1/2 feet on J Street; between I and J street with frontage 30 ft. on Great Highway, and 18 1/2 ft. on J".
Another letter describes a lot on "49th ave. and B Street", the bottom of Balboa west of Heartbreak Hotel.
