Where is Burlingame?

I thought Burlingame was a city in Northern California, but it is also an old neighborhood in San Diego in between North Park and South Park. Burlingame is a tract neighborhood that began building in 1912 and included diverse and cutting-edge (at the time) architectural styles. One awesome thing about this neighborhood today is that practically every person that owns a house here is a preservationist. I read this very detailed and interesting article about the formation of the neighborhood and decided to go take a look at what these old houses look like today (click here to see old photos of this house and some others that I'll show over the next few days). This is is the Norris House, built in 1912, and was one of the first completed houses of the tract.
