Historical Photo: ‘Fancy Fruits and Choice Meats’

In 1951, 4055 Irving St. at the corner of 42nd Avenue was the Portola Market advertising fancy fruits and choice meats. It was run for many years as A-1 Liquor & Groceries, until Palm City Wines recently took over—renovating the façade and restoring original details seen here. Photo courtesy of a private collector/Western Neighborhoods Project/OpenSFHistory.
