Child Street at Lombard Street

  • Neighborhood: Telegraph Hill
  • Location: From Lombard Street up to the end of Child Street
  • Height: 20 feet
The older buildings on the south side of the adjoining block of Lombard have front doors high above the level of the street, suggesting that the street originally was uneven, sloping down to the north side. Child Street may have once intersected with Lombard at level, only making these stairs necessary once it was graded to its present level.
