This photograph is contained in one of two volumes by Dobbin titled "Album of San Francisco."
Text written on photo: "Washington Street looking west from Front St. 1907." Written to left: "Looking west on Washington St. from Davis Street 1906." View shows bustling activity in the produce district involving both vegetables and building materials. Many carts and drays are in evidence, along with men walking down the street. The 1906 date is more probable since the street is lined with temporary wooden buildings and the Presidio and Ferries car line has not been electrified. The vantage point of Davis street is also correct since the Appraisers Building in the background is two blocks away rather than the single block from Front Street.
