Panhandle

I did not know about this 1928 SFDPW proposal to extend The Panhandle. I say better late than never! Bulldoze Safeway!

A proposal to extend the Panhandle Park to Market Street followed the Wiggle route exactly, but without the wiggling. The plan called for demolition of houses to allow a straight route.

Update: Apparently the Panhandle was a street at the time, so this would have been basically a ground-level freeway, which is not at all what I had in mind!

  1. Were they planning to develop Corona Heights too, or is it just that the map doesn't distinguish between streets and paths?

      This is why you spend extra on well-understood asset libraries when drawing maps and floorplans.

    Hahahaha!
    This is like a map of every place I got laid through the 1980's!
