Weekend Photo Diary: Duboce Street, 1969

San Francisco, Duboce Street, 1969
Photo by Flickr user Leroy W. Demery, Jr.

Was browsing Flickr for a photo to go into another post when I came across the photo above. It caught my eye because I instantly recognized the U.S. Mint building on the left, but it took a moment for me to orient myself. Then I wondered WTF an F car was doing nearby, not on Market where it belonged. It was only then that I realized this photo must’ve been old. 1969, in fact, well before the digging of the tunnel behind Safeway. Well before Safeway, in fact. Timeless photo. Props to Leroy W. Demery, Jr. for taking it and posting it on Flickr and making it accessible to all of us.

Enjoy your weekend!
