images of the ordinary and everyday – street scenes of the Sunset District

A midday walk on Wednesday, 27 Jan 2016, provided these views to be captured.

This residential area of the city is also known as “The Avenues”.  At 21st Avenue, we are looking east along Judah Street in this first image.

The streetcars were running frequently this day.  Lots of color in this image.

A couple of minutes earlier, we took this pic on Judah Street between 21st and 22nd Avenue(s).

Looking northeast near the intersection of Judah and 21st Avenue, red tile roofs are visible.

Standing in the street, looking down 20th Avenue, one can see the trees of Golden Gate Park in the distance.


street scene 3


One of the most heavily trafficked streets (day and night) in San Francisco – 19th Avenue.  There are 3 paved lanes in each direction for buses, trucks and cars.  Golden Gate Park is in the distance.


street scene 4


A typical scene on 21st Avenue.  Zero clearance between these homes means high density residential living.

  1. larry, those were my stomping grounds. I can’t believe the first person to like anything on my WP site is from the Sunset where I grew up. Such a small world. Unbelievable! Boy do those pictures remind me of riding Muni streetcars with my friends.

    1. Thanks for your comment. Yes, that is quite a coincidence. I did not grow up in SF, but have lived in the city at different times in my adult life. And, those streetcars have been running for decades. Take care and best wishes!
