In PHOTO ALBUM-VAULT: ** fc917.9461 A3, Vol. I, page 418 bottom.
This photograph is contained in one of two volumes by Dobbin titled "Album of San Francisco."
Photo of a stereograph. Text written under left side: "St. Ann's Building, Powell & Eddy. Powell St." Text written under right side: "Powell St. Baldwin Hotel, Market & Powell." Written to right: "Note the absence of cable for cars & turn-table." View looks north on Powell from Market toward Nob Hill, with the St. Ann's Building in the left foreground and the Baldwin Hotel on the right. The horsecar tracks of the Central Railroad Company run down Powell from Geary. They are double-tracked, but become single-tracked in the block of Powell between Ellis and Eddy. Since the Powell Street cable line was built in 1887, this photo would have been taken before that.
