COAST GUARD RADIO STATION SAN FRANCISCO
October 26, 1948

The Coast Guard Radio Station (NMC)San Bruno California is shown including the towers, radio station, quarters and garage with road connecting them. In the right foreground is located the county jail. This is basically how it looked when I was stationed there. I understand since the station relocated to the Point Reyes area that this is now wall to wall residential homes.
