Gas Stations on Monterey Blvd???? : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

Hey. This is an easy one (maybe). As you may know, I've lived in the Sunnyside all my life. One thing I hear a lot is how Monterey Blvd used to have 7 gas stations. Now, there are none. I only remember one: the one on the corner of Ridgewood (or as Kurt pointed out, Hamburg) and Monterey (or as Robert pointed out, Sunnyside). Where were the others?

Thanx. By the way, where did the East end of Monterey (or Sunnyside) end? I know one end is in St. Francis Wood...

Monterey(*Sunnyside) went from Circular Avenue to St Francis Wooods.

Good luck in your research.

From what I've gathered, there was one on Congo and Monterey (which?) 2 on Ridgewood and Monterey (one of which was a Chevron, the only one I remember. What was the other one?), one on Edna and Monterey (which?). By the way, have you seen Monterey lately? It has palm trees with shrubs and such. It's really nice.

That's all from the persistent cuss...

Where did you learn all this stuff anyway Kurt???

So what you're saying is that Sunnyside ended in the same place as the Freeway exit? And they made an extension to Diamond? When was the name changed? I like Sunnyside better. It must be nice to know almost everthing about SF history. I wish I were that smart...

Wasn't that place below where monterey ends also known as the "bernal cut", or was that just the extension from San Jose Ave. to day st. or whatever?

damn, they made good milkshakes at that creamery on Diamond where the bart station sits now...

Slow down, Salty. If you would, tell me what that place where the BART station is now was like back then.

Thanx. Monterey (Sunnyside) ends where the Bernal Cut begins.

I assume the Sunnyside area got it's name from the avenue.

i have recently devleoped a way of telling if someone is funny by three sentences they have written. so, what im wondering is, am i funny? by the way, my name doesnt count.cos this really is my name. dont worry, im not thinking about a lawsuit. im thinking about cheese. yes, so id really preciate it if one or many people came up with some sort of funny test. i anticipate questions to which humourus or unhumourus aswers must be given. and u lot remind me of rhebus monkeys.
