V1p426 In PHOTO ALBUM-VAULT: ** fc917.9461 A3, Vol. I, page 426. This photograph is contained in one of two volumes by Dobbin titled "Album of San Francisco." Text written under photo: "Sailors Home erected in the late 50s. Photo 1922." The building in this photo was originally the United States Marine Hospital, built in 1853 on the north side of Harrison between Main and Spear. It later became the Sailor's Home. This view looking northwest at the building from Spear Street shows it in the process of demolition. Many hoses and pipes are piled in the foreground. Albert Shumate in "Rincon Hill and South Park" gives the date of this building's demise as 1919, not 1922. The tracks on Spear Street are from one of the Omnibus Railroad Company's old horsecar lines, which in 1919 had not been used for over twenty years.
