San Francisco Postcards – City Hall


The old City Hall, destroyed in less than one minute in the 1906 Earthquake, from Fulton and Franklin Streets, and the new City Hall from Fulton and Franklin. The two buildings bordering the old City Hall were almost certainly destroyed by the fire to come that burned down most of San Francisco. The two buildings the City Hall is seen between today are The War Memorial Building on the left where the United Nations was formed, and the Opera House on the right.  (Thumbnail image)
