Orizaba Avenue - 1927

Orizaba Street - 1927

The bend in the "M - Ocean View" streetcar tracks look just the same in 2003 as they did in 1927. This shot is looking south down Orizaba past Farallones Street toward Broad Street. What isn't the same is the undeveloped hill straight ahead where Interstate 280 curves into Daly City. In 2003, homes carpet the landscape.
