The rustic stone bridge at Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park was built in 1893. Left: Weidner 266, postmarked SF 11/02/1907. Next: Weidner 677, postmarked SF 2/25/1909. Identical image, identical caption, both divided back, but different stock numbers; go figure. Next: Pacific Novelty 45, postmarked SF 1/01/1927, same image but with two added foreground boats and flowers on left bank. Right: Souvenir Post Card 4629. The Souvenir Post Card caption is incorrect: the 1906 earthquake did not destroy it, as seen in the Weidner cards and in 2020.
