  Ingleside Sundial
by sean420

Most people in San Francsco have no idea that their city is host to the world's second largest sundial. It was built in 1913 as a gimic to attract people to a new housing development that was built arround the configuration of the old Ingleside Race Track.

Here are the directions so that you can find the sun dial within the maze of streets that shield it from the world: Drive along Ocean Avenue until you reach Victoria (these streets meet where the Voice of Pentecost Church occupies the old El Rey theater). Go only one block along Victoria, turn right on Urbano, turn left on Borica, and right on Entrado
