Then and Now

‘Then and Now’: Ninth Avenue and Kirkham Street

Above: Muni’s 6-line streetcar at Ninth Avenue and Kirkham Street, beside McCambridge Market, 1948. Photo courtesy of a private collector/Western Neighborhoods Project/OpenSFHistory.

Below: What was once McCambridge Market is now Sunshine Cleaners. The building has not changed much, except for the missing exhaust pipes on the roof. This March 31 photo, taken 75 years after the photo above, shows the 43-Masonic bus has replaced the streetcar line. The photo was taken from the corner of Ninth Avenue and Kirkham Street, near the front door of the Roxie Market and Deli. Photo by Michael Durand.
