7th Avenue and Lake Laguna Honda histories

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Looking for historic information and photos of 7th Avenue and Lake Laguna Honda. What did the area look like before the road went through? Was the lake popular for anything? Did 7th avenue have an waterway running down it? Thanks

The lake was one of the major reservoirs for water coming in from the viaducts in San Mateo in the 1800s. It never was a recreational lake- - always a working water shed.

Good luck in your research.
