Nice!

I especially like this one with the moody stratus/marine layer!

Yep. That's my favorite, too.

Nah, this one's my fave. The little flatiron building at the bottom really draws me in. I want to be standing on that street corner.

Nice photos! Crazy how simultaneously different and similar it looks to SF of today.

Side note, that was my favorite era of Muni livery.

Back when these pics were taken, there was a great Italian restaurant on the ground floor of that flatiron where I would regularly bring my parents, sister, etc. I even took my husband there for his first meal in San Francisco. That restaurant is now gone, and the building has been painted black and dark gray.

That was an awesome scroll. Loved seeing all the cars from that era. Loved me some 90s decade.

Anybody have a time machine?

The Doubtfire era of SF will forever be the SF in my mind.

Nice vintage photos! This one stood out to me because of the cars. They definitely don't make them like that anymore! Also, why was it so crowded at Crissy Field, in the last photo? Was it Fleet Week?

Yes, great scenes and photos! I totally remember this era, too! I started visiting San Francisco regularly since 1989, so these pics totally bring back memories!

AMAZING photos! I would give anything for SF to return this state, I do not like how the city is now. Agreed, this is the prime Doubtfire era that made me fall in love with San Francisco as a kid and drove me to move there for Uni.

It's a reminder of how old I am getting that these feel 70s vintage.
