Gone, but not forgotten

transbaybuildinguse Gone, the old Transbay Terminal Building: My picture was taken on August 3rd 2010, four days before the Transbay Terminal closed forever. That building in the background of the vintage picture was damaged during the 1989 Loma Prieta Earthquake and had to be demolished.  Dupont-gaiuse Gone, old timers in Chinatown who still referred to Grant Avenue as “Dupont Gai” or Dupont Street up until the 1980’s: This was the street’s original name until after the 1906 Earthquake. ellishouseuse Gone, many of the vintage Victorian houses in the Western Addition near Fillmore, demolished in the 1960’s and 1970’s: However, some of these houses, like this one, survived, when they were sold for practically nothing, relocated and restored. Here is this lucky one today on Ellis Street near Divisadero. (Dave Glass) Haightuse Gone, Haight-Ashbury during the “Summer of Love”:  Gonetrainuse Gone, the trains that used to run to Fisherman’s Wharf: That’s the Cannery Building on the right.
