Whether you’re lucky enough to be at the World Series game today, you might appreciate this piece of history from SFMTA’s Photography Archive. This photo of the 22-Fillmore loading and unloading passengers was taken at Seals Stadium on April 29, 1958, the very first year that the Giants called SF home. The passengers were on their way to see the Giants vs. Phillies.
Seals Stadium was on 16th at Bryant, and this photo was taken just about a year before the stadium was demolished in 1959 when Candlestick Park was completed. The old site of Seals Stadium is now the Safeway shopping plaza.
Okay, history lesson over. Time to don your orange and black! Go, Giants!
Candlestick opened in the spring of 1960, but it wasn’t completed (with the full, wraparound upper deck) until the early 1970s.
