Christmas in the City – Market Street (Thumbnail image)


Market Street, between 3rd and 4th Streets during the Holidays in 1903. At least three of the buildings in the old photo can still be seen today. The building with the red and green Baroque ornamentation roof on the left side of Market opened up in 1902 as the First Nationwide Bank. The copper colored building just to the right of it is the Chronicle Building, opened in 1889. In the old photo, the clock that was on the top of the building was destroyed in the 1906 Earthquake. The tall building across Market Street on the right is the Call Building. Its beautiful crowned roof can’t be seen in the picture. Built in 1898, it was remodeled in 1938, and looks more like a wedding cake today. The Call Building can be seen above the trees at the right in the modern picture.
