This photograph is contained in one of two volumes by Dobbin titled "Album of San Francisco."
Text written under photo: "Hobart residence Washington & Van Ness. Afterward home of R. Porter Ashe on marriage to Amy [sic] Crocker. Destroyed by fire 1906." In the introduction to "Victorian Classics of San Francisco, " Alex Brammer wrote that the house was built by Judge and Mrs. Edwin B. Crocker for their daughter Aimee when she married Porter Ashe in 1882, and was sold to Walter Scott Hobart after Mr. and Mrs. Ashe divorced. It did not burn in 1906 and was occupied for a time afterwards by the City of Paris department store. This photo shows the house being demolished in 1913.
