The 4th & Townsend Caltrain terminal, as it looked until its late 1990s makeover. (A block away at 3rd, there once stood a beautiful Spanish Mission style station, in the days when steaming locomotives brought thousands into the city every day.) Note too, the stump of Interstate-280 that dead-ended at 4th Street in the background of this photo.

The Caltrain terminal in 2013, still an unimpressive concrete block, albeit with new signs and significantly new surroundings!
