SFlashback: Pacific Heights, 1953

Browsing Flickr, I found this photo from 1953 of a very old frame house located directly across Alta Plaza Park at 2610 Jackson Street.

The big 19th century mansion is like the quintessential spooky home of children’s cartoons and 1950s horror films — and within four years of this photo’s date, was torn down and replaced with the residence you see below. Pacific Heights, circa 1957 sold in 2004 for $4.9 million, according to public records.
