Text under photo: "Vallejo Street Wharf, 1865. Telegraph Hill in background. The square building was a warehouse on the N.W. cor. of Battery & Vallejo. The cross is about where the ship Lady Cairns was moored to Front St. Wharf in 1872. The wharf had then just been completed. The busses and wagons are awaiting the arrival of the steamer "Petaluma" from up-river, loaded to the guards with cattle, eggs, butter & farmers. 10 to 1 bet the farmers, every one, could be located that same evening in or about the Bella Union, what?"
