After 139 years at 807 Franklin St. in San Francisco, a two-story Victorian house has a new address.
The green home with large windows and a brown front door was loaded onto giant dollies and moved to a location six blocks away. Onlookers lined the sidewalks to snap photos as the structure rolled at a top speed of 1 mph to 635 Fulton St.
Veteran house mover Phil Joy said this move is tricky in part because the first part of the journey involves going downhill. Along the route, parking meters were ripped up, tree limbs were trimmed and traffic signs were relocated.
The owner of the six-bedroom house, San Francisco broker Tim Brown, will pay about $400,000 in fees.（AP）
