When this photograph, looking southeast towards Lone Mountain from Ninth Avenue near Geary Boulevard, was taken around 1890, the Star of the Sea Church, built in 1888, was still a new addition to the neighborhood. Visible in the distance is the Bay District Racetrack, Golden Gate Park and Mt. Sutro (upper right). Photo courtesy of a private collector/Western Neighborhoods Project.
