Lotta's Lion -- July 12, 2012

I took this photo of a lion on Lotta's Fountain on 20-April-2007.  Actress Lotta Crabtree donated it to the city in 1875, so people and horses would have a place to drink water.  After the 1906 Fire and Earthquake, the fountain, at Market, Geary and Kearny, was a popular place for people looking for friends and relatives to post notices.  Since then, the people of San Francisco have gathered every April 18 to remember the earthquake and fire.
