Historical Photo: Racetrack in the Richmond

If you could go back in time to the Richmond District circa 1890, you would find the Bay District Race Track on Fulton Street between First (Arguello) and Fourth avenues. The Fulton Street cable car can be seen in the foreground of this photo, and the first Star of the Sea Church (1888-1918) is faintly visible in the background on the left, just beyond the grandstand.
