Community Gallery: What Did Downtown San Bruno Look Like Circa 1900?

The release of the draft environmental impact report for the city's downtown transit corridors plans offers an opportunity to take a look at the history of downtown San Bruno. Have any other images?

Now that the city has of its downtown transit corridors plan, residents can get a better sense of how the core part of San Bruno could be changed.

The plan looks to transform the historic part of the downtown area surrounding San Mateo Avenue, El Camino Real, San Bruno Avenue and Huntington Avenue into a well-connected transit hub with mixed-used development, pedestrian-friendly roadways and a new Caltrain station.

That's what ahead for the future.

To remind everyone how much—or how little—downtown San Bruno has changed since the city's beginnings, take a look at the to see what the downtown environment looked like circa 1900.

Have any other historical images of the downtown area?
