Sunset Beacon

Historical Photo – Outer Sunset in 1910

In 1910, Adolph Sutro’s massive estate, including this area, was assessed by A.S. Baldwin, creating a block-by-block photographic record of much of the west side. This photo of Block 625, No. 35, shows the southeasterly corner of Irving (then known as I Street) and 48th Avenue, looking north to the Murphy Windmill in Golden Gate Park.
