This photograph is contained in one of two volumes by Dobbin titled "Album of San Francisco."
Text written under photo: "Bush & Montgomery Street taken in the late 50s. This is the site of the present Russ Building. Posters on house of "Bella Union Melodian [sic]" Hayes Park and Tucker the Jeweler. The 3 story house 3rd from corner is the American Hotel." Photo is of the northwest corner of Bush and Market. The streets are unpaved; the sidewalks are planked. A few carriages can be seen but only one person. Although one substantial three-story brick and masonry structure can be seen at the left, the rest of the buildings in this photo are of the wooden construction and design typical of San Francisco in the very early 1850s.
