San Francisco Historical Photos Contest: Winter 2018

San Francisco Historical Photos Contest: Winter 2018

Winter 2018 – South Park, 1855

The park was originally constructed in 1855 as the center of an exclusive residential community. It was modeled after a square in London, England, as a housing development of seventeen mansions plus townhouses. (a total of 58 residences) on a 550-foot oval around a private grassy park. It featured the first paved streets and sidewalks in San Francisco. A windmill in the center of the park pumped water for the houses.
