Paddock on Pierce Street
mixed media photo collage on board, 14”x11”
It should come as no surprise that I am a fan of historic photos. Years ago I came across this photo from 1887 of a rare snowfall in San Francisco. The photo was taken from the top of the rocky outcrop above where my apartment now sits. My building was built in the 1920s, but many of the buildings in the 1887 photo are still standing. From the photo I learned there was once paddock across the street at Pierce and Oak. For this Time Travel Photo I stood on Pierce Street looking back up towards my home, where the paddock once was.
