Photograph of the corner of San Diego's Fifth Street and F Street, looking north, ca.1903. The busy dirt road is lined with tall buildings and shops on both sides. Those on the left have awnings covering the first floor windows. There is a row of utility poles on the left side of the street, and there are two streetcar tracks in the middle of the road. There is a streetcar on the track on the right while horse-drawn vehicles line both sides of the street. There are several pedestrians on the sidewalks and two people can be seen pushing a cart across the street at center. Legible signs include, from left to right: "Cigars", "The Palace", "Book", "[La]undry", "[Ba]nk of Commerce", "Kodaks", "Patterson", "56", "To 31st & National Avenue", "Normandie Furnished Rooms", and "Annual Clearance".
