In PHOTO ALBUM-VAULT: ** fc917.9461 A3, Vol. I, page 431 center.
This photograph is contained in one of two volumes by Dobbin titled "Album of San Francisco."
Text written under photo: "Mareet [sic] St. & Embacardero [sic]. A bit befofe [sic] automobiles & the subway 1900." The date is erroneous since this is obviously a post-fire view, taken after the downtown had been rebuilt. Numerous horse-drawn carts are passing in the foreground. A Sacramento-Clay cable car of the United Railroads is turning from the Embarcadero through Market into Sacramento Street. United Railroads electric cars can be seen on Market. A horsecar is westbound on the outer track. Signs adorn most of the buildings. The Call Building is in the distance on the left side of Market. The photo has been torn down the middle and repaired with tape.
