Wow, it's so ridiculous, it looks like a doctored photo.
Check google maps "street view" at Lakeshore and Mandana. The church may not be as old, but I bet it predates the gas station.
It looks like maybe before it was a gas station, it was just a vacant lot with billboards? At least if I'm judging correctly from this photo: http://www.keyrailpix.org/gallery2/v/keyrailmain/album01/Key_22_Bway_Mar1937_RD.jpg.html
That's a great link! Is the church in the background on the left? Crazy how many billboards were up back then, maybe even more than today.
Yes, I'm pretty sure that that's the church in the left background.Apparently it is old enough to have been damaged pretty badly in the 1906 earthquake and then repaired: http://content.cdlib.org/ark:/13030/hb7489p21s/
A century is not that old, and - why not?I mean - it's just a church. If they objected, they should have bought the property if it was available.
