Ingleside Terraces, looking west

INgleside Terraces - 1910s

The familiar pillars of Ingleside Terraces, looking west over Junipero Serra Boulevard towards Lake Merced. This photograph makes understandable the developers' claims of lake and ocean views for potential buyers.

When Ingleside Terraces went up in the 1910s there wasn't a Stonestown mall, a Lakeside neighborhood, Park Merced towers or San Francisco State to block the view.
