In PHOTO ALBUM-VAULT: ** fc917.9461 A3, Vol. I, page 323 top.
This photograph is contained in one of two volumes by Dobbin titled "Album of San Francisco."
Text written under photo: "Market Street looking east from Montgomery Street 1914. 1917?" The latter date is more plausible since the Southern Pacific Building, seen on the south side of Market near the Ferry Building, was not begun until 1916. The photo was also obviously taken from the Hobart Building, which is not at Montgomery but slightly east of it. The Flatiron Building is visible in the foreground. The Ferry Building and S.P. Building can be seen at the end of Market. Numerous ships can be seen in the bay, as well as Goat Island. Four tracks of streetcars are visible on Market.
