A Different Treasure Island





As a contrast to yesterday's beautiful administrative building and interior murals, here are some buildings on the island that were either condemned or destroyed by fire. This landfilled island was built for the 1939 World's Fair and followed with plans of making it the San Francisco airport, but during World War II, it became a naval base instead.

Unused space in SF? I wonder how much that land is worth?

well it certainly is a mess, i think i like the new much better, but i bet it really has a lot of history it could tell.
