Palms trees on 11th ave : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

My family owned a house on 11th ave between lake and california in the 50s and 60s. I remember as a kid there were large palm trees planted on the sidewalk, one right in our front door at 138. Who and when were they planted. And when did they come down? Thanks!

I don't have the answers, but there is still one large Palm Tree on 11th Avenue on that block I believe, and I had wondered why it was there. It almost protrudes into the street, so perhaps the rest were taken out because of their size. I do remember that alot of palm trees were moved from the 1915 Worlds Fair to other neighborhoods- maybe thats where they came from- the timing would be about right for the houses in that neighborhood.
