SF sure had some strange architecture. I saw one building in there that was a combo of gothic and Victorian. Couldn't have even imagined that until now.

But a lot of those photos look very familiar. It's kind of amazing how much remains, having survived the quake and everything.
I checked google maps to see what now sits at Gough & Eddy St. only to discover that there's nothing there. I would of assumed the congregation would have tried to rebuild there former church, but I guess I was wrong. Also, out of all the photos I found, I felt the snowstorm one and the one below to be the most impressive.
“Most planning of the past fifteen years has been based upon three destructive fallacies: the cataclysmic insists upon tearing everything down in order to design from an absolutely clean slate; the automotive would plan for the free passage of the automobile at the expense of all other values; the suburban dislikes the city anyway and would just as soon destroy its density and strew it across the countryside.” Vince Scully
