Vintage Postcards: Seabiscuit at Tanforan Park Mall in San Bruno
A vintage postcard from the early 70s showing the statue of Seabiscuit in Tanforan Park Shopping Center in San Bruno.
The back side of the postcard reads: "This life size statue of Seabiscuit is located in one of the many Malls of Tanforan Park to commemorate the historic race track site the Center now occupies. Where former champions once raced, shoppers now enjoy the San Francisco Peninsula's most beautiful enclosed Mall." Excuse the unusual capitalization.
A lone woman appears fixated on the statue. A paid model?
Seabiscuit still stands today outside the mall, across from Barnes & Noble on the El Camino side.
