Earlier in the month we looked at vehicles Seen on the Streets and Byways of San Francisco and return to the City today with this circa 1960 photograph of the Bayshore Freeway. The thoroughfare, known as the 101 Freeway replaced the dangerous and non-divided “Bloody Bayshore” Highway between San Francisco and San Jose which was built between the late-twenties and its completion in 1937. Construction of the modern replacement, the Bayshore Freeway began in San Francisco in the late-forties and was finished in 1962.
Exactly where in San Francisco this image filled with late-forties to 1959 vintage automobiles was taken is not known and hopefully, readers will be able to pinpoint the location. Tell us what you find of interest in this photo courtesy of the USC Libraries.
