When the city was originally laid out, the avenues were numbered from 1st to 49th, and the east-west streets were lettered A to X. In 1909, to reduce confusion for mail carriers, the east-west streets and 1st Avenue and 49th Avenue were renamed. The east-west streets were named in ascending alphabetical order in a southward direction after prominent 19th-century American politicians, military leaders, or explorers; 19th-century Mexican landowners (Ranchos of California); and Spanish (Spanish people) conquistadors. 1st Avenue was renamed Arguello Boulevard, and 49th Avenue was renamed La Playa Street (Spanish for "the beach"). 78X Candlestick Express Funston and California Candlestick Park Richmond (Richmond District, San Francisco), Golden Gate Park, Sunset (Sunset District, San Francisco), Stonestown Galleria, Crocker-Amazon (Crocker-Amazon, San Francisco), Excelsior (Excelsior District, San Francisco), Balboa Park (Balboa Park, San Francisco) Route map (PDF) - In 1855, Mother Baptist Russell and the Sisters of Mercy opened a night school for adults on Vallejo Street, San Francisco.

The Helga pictures are not an obvious psychological study of the subject, but more an extensive study of her physical landscape set within Wyeth's customary landscapes. She is nearly always portrayed as unsmiling
