Aerial Map, Gunst Estate, 1927

Aerial view of Burlingame showing large undeveloped areas east of Carolan Avenue. The Gunst Estate is the square area with trees in the lower center of the photograph, north of tree-lined Burlingame Avenue.

East of the Gunst Estate is the old Carolan polo fields, and to its northwest is Burlingame High School, built in 1923.  The long row of trees running from the lower center of the photograph to its top left is today’s Jules Francard Grove. This photograph predates the filling of the bay that created a large swath of land east of today’s Highway 101.
