Capitol Avenue at Farallones Street - 1910s

Farallones at Capitol - 1910s

This scene isn't very different in 2003. Sheridan School would be just to the right of this photo, and the two buildings on the corner are still the same (one is a church and the "Sheridan Bazaar" on the right is no longer a store). Even the fog on the hills to the south looks familiar.
