Stern Grove is visible in the center of the photograph, with Larsen Park attached at 19th Avenue. Sloat Boulevard is to the right of Stern Grove. To the far right is construction that would become Lowell High School and the Stonestown Galleria, which was constructed in 1952. Photo courtesy of a private collector/Western Neighborhoods Project.
