Then and Now

‘Then and Now’: Lincoln Way at 14th Avenue

Above: This photo from the 1930s shows the Market Street Railway 7-line streetcar #135 southbound headed west on Lincoln Way. SF Municipal Railways map described the streetcar’s route as starting at the Bridge Terminal, then headed down Market Street to Haight Street to Lincoln Way to Ocean Beach to Balboa Street.

Below: The same view 90 years later shows plenty of changes. The railway is gone as is the corner gas station, which was replaced by an apartment building. Down the center of Lincoln Way is a narrow median, all the parking spots are full and the trees in Golden Gate Park have matured. Photo taken on Nov. 29, 2022. Photo by Michael Durand.
