I Left SF for the Peninsula, and I Don’t Miss It
Christina Bonnington

Great article, though as one born in 1942, raised worked, and retired within a 20 mile radius, I need to point out that it’s The Peninsula and The City, with initial caps.

Growing up in the farm and dairylands south of Palo Alto, we’d drive up to The City on Bayshore Highway (now US 101) and pass signs at Holly, Ralston, 19th, all stating San Carlos (or Belmont or San Mateo) 1 Mile ➡️ with an arrow pointing west. All the east-west streets crossing Bayshore were at grade level with stoplights.

It was a wonderful time!
