Geary Boulevard is a major thoroughfare in San Francisco. It crosses nearly the entire peninsula, from Kearney Street in the east all the way to the Pacific Ocean in the west. It was named after John W. Geary, the first mayor of San Francisco (who also later served as governor of both Kansas and Pennsylvania). The road primarily serves the Richmond District, a mostly-residential neighborhood tucked between the Presidio to the north and Golden Gate Park to the south.
We’ve recreated the classic signage located along Geary Boulevard for your enjoyment. Our sign is made according to the iconic 1965 specification for street signs in San Francisco. This is the last style of all-capitals signage, using the standard road sign fonts in black on a white background. It carries the block number 4400; this is where the intersection with 8th Avenue is located, in the heart of the Inner Richmond.
Our Geary Boulevard sign is a high-quality replica printed on heavy steel. Choose between three sizes: the 36-by-12 size of the original signs seen in the field, or our convenient scaled-down versions, 30 by 10 or 21 by 7. You can also choose between a single- or double-sided sign. The double-sided sign is printed with a complementary legend on each side; the arrows point in the same direction, just the way they do on the originals. We’ve included three sets of mounting holes, allowing for easy installation flush to a wall, or cantilevered from a pole as seen in the field.
