When this photograph, looking southeast towards Lone Mountain from Ninth Avenue near Geary Boulevard, was taken around 1890, the Star of the Sea Church, built in 1888, was still a new addition to the neighborhood.

The cause of a fire that shut down five businesses and displaced residents at the intersection of Geary Boulevard and 18th Avenue was unintentional, according to an incident report from the San Francisco Fire Department.
A 54-year-old man who was struck by a vehicle during the early morning hours of Aug. 4 died several weeks after the accident.

The project is funded from the $248 million Road Repaving and Street Safety
Bond, which voters passed in 2011.
