You are looking at the double decker escalator heading up to Candlestick Park from the Gate A entrance of the main parking lot. I always enjoyed taking the escalator up as this was one of the biggest escalators I ever rode. At the foot of the upper escalator entrance is a souvenir stand.
I’m glad I shot photos of this double decker escalator in the late 1980’s, since it may be rare. I also like seeing the many cars in the main parking lot. It is interesting to see the old style cars parked.
When I was photographing Candlestick Park, little did I know that one day this stadium would be demolish. Also I never thought I would be recording this stadium’s history with my photographs. This is a reminder for all of us that it is important to take lots of photographs to record the different scenes in our life.
