A rainy Market Street day


Thomas Kinkade’s painting of Market Street between 4th and 5th on a rainy Nineteenth Century day, and what a rainy day at this location really looks like today. Although Kinkade’s paintings have an artistic nostalgia about them that never really existed, there are a couple of accurate images in his painting; the domed building at right center is the Call Building that survived the 1906 Earthquake, and was remodeled into the brow and white striped building now called Central Tower. The Gothic looking building directly across Market Street from the Call Building survives today, and can just be seen behind the trees on the left side of Market Street. (Thumbnail image)
