Sunnyside/Monterey Boulevard

From the A.S. Baldwin survey of Adolph Sutro's estate in 1912: "San Miguel Ranch
"No. 61. Standing in the center of Sunnyside Avenue, between Genesee and Hamburg streets in Sunnyside, looking westerly towards projected extension of Sunnyside Avenue through San Miguel Ranch."

Sunnyside Avenue - Baldwin book

Sunnyside Avenue was indeed extended through the ranch. The street name was changed to Monterey Boulevard and the road wound between the new developments of Westwood Park and Westwood Highlands, terminating in St. Francis Wood.
