Historical Photo: “Where’s the Beef?”

Long lines mirroring pandemic times at Denhard’s Market at 701 10th Avenue near Cabrillo Street. This photo was taken on March 1, 1943, the beginning of World War II’s “Ration Book Two” which added more restricted items and a new set of stamps to match the purchase. Photo courtesy of a private collector/Western Neighborhoods Project/OpenSFHistory.
