The Sunset District of San Francisco, called "the Sunset" for short, is comprised of 3 distinct neighborhoods - the Outer Sunset, the Central Sunset, and the Inner Sunset. Please click on the corresponding album (see links below) for more information about any of these neighborhoods. The Sunset district of San Francisco is primarily a "bedroom community" within the city, with the single family detached house being the predominant housing type. Shops and restaurants and small businesses can be found along Irving and Judah streets, in particular. The Sunset district started to develop in the early 1900's, when streetcar lines were extended and the downtown began running out of space. The Sunset, Richmond, and Parkside districts were all generally known as the "Outer Lands" (as well as by less affectionate terms, such as the "Great Sand Waste"!), and were generally perceived as being too far away and too inaccessible to downtown -- that is, until the streetcar lines were put in, and development of the areas began to really take off. While the area had previously been nothing but miles of barren sand dunes, with less than 20 houses between Stanyan and the Pacific Ocean circa 1890, the first developer of the region, Aurelius E. Buckingham, dubbed the area "the Sunset district" (for obvious reasons -- you can still see the sun set over the Pacific from many of the homes), and began building homes. His residential tract extended a few blocks south of Golden Gate Park, on 5th Avenue and along Lincoln Way. After the completion of the Twin Peaks Tunnel in 1918, and as streets and rail lines expanded, the Sunset grew. The Sunset district had many builders, all of whom borrowed and stole housing designs from each other, but in general, the overwhelming majority of the homes have the same basic design, except for differing facades. In the 1930's and 1940's, Henry Doelger, developer/contractor, built thousands of homes on the sand dunes of the Sunset district and sold them for $5000 a piece. You can't even touch one for anywhere near $500,000 now, though! Anyone have a time machine handy?!
