Alley #8 -- June 10, 2010

Looking down Hotaling Place from Jackson towards the Transamerica Pyramid on 06-April-2010. The buildings on either side of the alley were the whiskey warehouses of Anson P Hotaling. The buildings and the surrounding block survived the Earthquake and Fire in 1906 in part because the Fire Department saw of the wisdom of not blowing up buildings that contained millions of gallons of alchohol. The wavy lines in the street represent the original shoreline.
