Some Retro Fun

Here's an old photo I came across the other day, and it seemed like more fun to share this than gripe about broken doors on the N and people drinking malt liquor on the steps in front of the working ones.

This is the N-Judah and 6-Parnassus (known then as the 6-Haight/Masonic) near Carl and Cole. Today, Burgermeister would be on the left, just outside the frame. The N and 6 once shared tracks on Carl between the Sunset Tunnel and Stanyan, back when rail was king.

Comments

Thanks, but this doesn't clearly explain why, it just sort of references that something used to be different.

@JR: Not sure what's so difficult to understand - this was just a picture share from the book mentioned. The 6 was not part of MUNI at the time, and Mason just wanted to show a nice little piece of history of the N.

For more information on the N Judah, the Market Street Railway, and more, consult your local library or bookstore.
