Full res above, preview below.

A few years earlier we could have seen the SFO Helicopters
just east of Kaiser Auditorium, where the bare ground is here.
Think they were still landing on the 13th St parking garage in 1971.

Ah, Kaiser Auditorium.....a great place to watch a concert.  Many thanks to Bill Graham and a few of his buddies. Nothing like driving up 101 from LA, following the Coast Line back when it still had freight traffic, hit a NYE show, and make the return trip. The Espee and Uncle Bill's favorite band - a great way to spend 4 or 5 days.

Neato! Here's a 1965 to 1974 then/then type thing with the trackmaps in Google Earth, showing where the SP's little industrial lead was in here on the remains of the 7th St./Dutton Ave. East Bay Electrics line.
