Description

In PHOTO ALBUM-VAULT: ** fc917.9461 A3, Vol. I, page 225
This photograph is contained in one of two volumes by Dobbin titled "Album of San Francisco."
Text written under photo: "This is the head of the Liberty Statue after being removed fron [sic] top of dome City Hall. 1914. Note See page 423 City Hall illuminated showing statue on top." One workman and a man wearing a suit and derby are flanking the head of the Liberty statue. A mound of rubble can be seen behind them. One of the old City Hall's towers is visible in the background, whether the buildings seen closer in were part of that structure is difficult to say. According to the 1907-08 San Francisco Municipal Reports, the old City Hall was razed in 1909 as the report was being printed.
