273 – Back Lit Statue of Saint Francis of Assisi. Photograph taken in the late 1980’s. According to San Francisco Chronicle columnists Matier & Ross, the steel and concrete statue by Ruth Wakefield Cravath will be moved from the ballpark and refurbished. It will then be put in storage as the stadium is being demolished. The new location for installing the statue is to be determined. The statue was installed at the ballpark in 1973 after the project to add seats and enclose the stadium for the 49ers.
