Description
Photograph of a drawing depicting San Francisco's Montgomery Street looking south from Sacramento Street, ca.1890. The street is marked by streetcar tracks, which start as a single set in the background and spilt near the center of the image. There are two horse-drawn streetcars on the tracks, as well as many pedestrians in the street in the foreground. The street is lined with solid walls of shops and buildings, all of which are at least three stories in height. A building on the left has a large tower on its roof, and there are flagpoles flying large banners on both sides of the street.
