South City Junction: Fun Historical Facts

South San Francisco, CA   October 5, 2015   Submitted by Historical Society of South San Francisco

Located at the end of Grand Avenue and Old Mission Road used to sit South San Francisco Junction (aka Leipsic or South City Junction). This photo from May 18, 1945 is looking north east.
It appears as though some of these ladies are dressed to take the northbound 40 Line streetcar into San Francisco. Some wonderful fashion details can be seen in the close up.
