I’ve seen these brick circles, or sometimes half circles, in the center of various intersections through out the city. I thought they might be historical markers or previous landmarks. In fact, each brick circle outlines an underground cistern full of pressurized water. The cisterns, ranging in size from 10,000 gallons to 250,000 gallons, are supplemental water supplies for the SF Fire Dept in addition to the high pressure and low pressure systems. They are accessible by special green hydrant valves and are tested every few years to ensure integrity. There are 172 cisterns strategically spread throughout SF, totaling 11 million gallons of auxiliary water, enough to cover the city 1.25″ deep, and are part of the San Francisco Fire Department Auxiliary Water Supply System, a subset of The San Francisco High Pressure Water System.

SF freeway plans throughout history. At UC Berkeley's Bancroft Library there is a collection of plans for proposed but never realized projects around the Bay Area that is as fascinating as it is scary.
SF freeway plans throughout history. The planners who envisioned ringing the City's entire shoreline with freeways must have really had it in for San Francisco. ...Even those who could remember a time before its construction were blown away by the view created of the Ferry Building after the demolition of the Embarcadero Freeway. Yep. That was was a bad day for freeway proponents.
