Go, Giants! Go! Well, this is the place to be if they have to. I’m not too sure how we won the war with that cap less sailor in the middle on our side, but we did! The tall building in the back was the old Empire Hotel. The grass in this area is gone now and the comparison is a little bit off today because they were walking right where the San Francisco Main Library is now.

This terrific World War Two photo was in front of the Telenews Movie Theater at 930 Market Street. The theater was located at what is now the edge of Hallidie Plaza. The 2014 Victory Parade was on Halloween, and the light rain falling didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm!

7th & Market on VJ Day, and for the Giants Parade November 3rd 2010. Notice the Flood Building on the left side of Market, and the old Humboldt-Bank of America Building on the right side in both scenes. The brick streetcar island on the left in the modern picture is actually nearer to the center of Market Street for easier streetcar access.
