I got an informed opinion the other day- but thought I’d throw this out to the knowledgeable SF Metblogs readers.
Old skool seismic reinforcement?
Place to tie your horse?
It’s most likely a “wall washer”, a kind of bolt used to keep brick walls on lower levels from bulging and sagging. Usually they’re star shaped and quite common on 19th century buildings.
It’s an architectural nose piercing.
yup – i second (3d? 4th?) the reinforcement answer. it serves both an anti-bulge and seismic purpose.
and from your flickr stream, seems this is in a retaining wall? in north beach? it is there to keep the bricks from falling down. it may also appear older than it is because of the salt in the air.
