Open Shutter to the Past: San Francisco in Pictures: Great Highway "Carville" (1908)


If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I’ve been in the process of a long and (at times) painful remodel of a home out in the Outer Sunset. Well, the day to move into my new home is right around the corner (in fact I’ll be slowly moving my belongings into our place over the next week or so).
So to celebrate this amazing day, for today’s Photo Friday I decided to share with you a photo of the old “Carville”.
Old “Carville” was located around the area of Great Highway and Lincoln Way.
The newscopy for this photo read:

(4/8/47): “FEW REMAIN–Several examples of car houses which used to be numerous at the Beach are shown in the above photograph, taken from a postcard mailed in 1908. One of the two buildings just over the Queen Lily Soap poster housed the old Oceanside School, still standing.”

It’s a little bit of history of the old Outer Sunset and I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you enjoy your weekend!
