When I was in San Francisco last week, I once again dove deep into admiring the City’s buildings and structures. This time for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge, I am posting a few shots of one of the beautiful places I stopped in at.
The Hearst Building housed the San Francisco Examiner until 1965. Located on Market and 3rd in San Francisco, it became known as “newspaper angle”, as two other papers were located in the vicinity, The Call, and the Chronicle. Torn down and rebuilt in 1898 as a 7 story structure it was destroyed by the earthquake of 1906. It was then rebuilt into 13 stories and finished in 1911 and still holds the original beauty of that build today.
I have some great memories of the City by the Bay, and after going back up last weekend, I made a commitment to myself to getting back a bit more often to reclaim the past. Just thinking about my GG and GGG Grandparents frolicking with the who’s who of San Fran gets my mind rolling in all sorts of fantastical thoughts and back into the papers I have inherited. To read the thoughts from their penmanship makes it all real. So does checking out the wonderful buildings we have from our pasts. Just take a walk. Wherever you might be, just take a look at the building and wonder a bit.
Making new memories to share is always what Tales From My Lens is about.
