Candlestick, then and now

We welcome you to flip through a small collection of photos showing San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, then and now. Fans, players, locker room, field and finally the park reduced to a large pile of rubble and a lone standing escalator, which will likely be the last thing demolished. We bid a fond farewell to the past and look forward to the future.
