Driving in the City – El Camino Del Mar

drivedelmaruse

The following is a collection of driving and parking images in San Francisco throughout the years. Boy this baby’s a beauty; sleek, classy, sporty, and an adventure to drive around San Francisco with. They don’t make ‘em like that anymore! The 1953 Chevy Corvette is nice too! The lady was parked on El Camino Del Mar in Lincoln Park, one of the prettiest drives in San Francisco.

Driving in the City – Bush Street

Let’s see, Bush at Montgomery, 1905. There’s probably ten cars in all of San Francisco, and that jerk still can’t park straight! That’s the old Mills Building on the left, one of the few downtown buildings that survived the earthquake and fire the following year.

Crime in San Francisco – Mission Dolores Park

doloresparkuse

The following collection are crime scenes, both real and from the movies at San Francisco locations. In this remarkable photo from Hannah Clayborn’s ‘Historic Photos of San Francisco Crime’ Roman Rodriguez (sitting on the lawn between the police) reenacts the murder of 16 year old Hilda Pagan on March 25, 1952 at Dolores Park. As Pagan passed by him, he called her up to sit with him on top of the ledge at the left. Later, they climbed down to the lawn below to “embrace” where he beat and strangled her. The lady with her hands to her face may be Hilda’s mother. A top addition has been added to where the two sat, and it’s now the Dolores Park restroom   (Thumbnail image)   DoloresMurderupdate Update, November 22, 2015: Since I took the top picture of the Hilde Pagan murder spot, the building where Roman Rodriguez murdered her has been demolished due to the Dolores Park renovations.
