The Lower Haight of Yesteryear, Part Two

By Andrew Dudley - Published on April 29, 2010.
Yesterday, we brought you a set of historical photos from the eastern half of the Lower Haight. Today we're heading west of Fillmore with an even larger set, including amazing pre-quake shots of a Duboce Park without dogs, Divisadero without gas stations, and perhaps most striking/eerie, street after street without a single tree. Enjoy.

Note: All old-timey photos courtesy of the San Francisco Public Library. The rest are haighteration's.
