San Francisco City Hall re-opened in 1915 in its open space area in the city's Civic Center, it is a Beaux-Arts monument to the City Beautiful movement that epitomized the high-minded American Renaissance of the 1880s to 1917. The structure's dome is taller than that of the United States Capitol by 42 feet. The present building replaced an earlier City Hall that was destroyed during the 1906 earthquake. 📷 by @richardcelis3 #sanfranciscohistory  #sanfrancisco #cityhall #sfcityhall #differentview #lookingdown #drones

The main prison building was built in 1910–1912 during its time as a United States Army military prison; Alcatraz had been the site of a citadel since the 1860s. 📷 by #alcatrazisland #sanfrancisco #sf #sanfranciscobayarea

The Port of San Francisco is a semi-independent organization that oversees the port facilities at San Francisco. It is run by a five-member commission, appointed by the Mayor and approved by the Board of Supervisors. The Port is responsible for managing the larger waterfront area that extends from the anchorage of the Golden Gate Bridge, along the Marina district, all the way around the north and east shores of San Francisco including Fisherman's Wharf and the Embarcadero, and southward to the city line just beyond Candlestick Point. 📷 by @chowdy #sanfrancisco #portofsanfrancisco #moodygrams #sf #sightseeing #californiaadventure
The Palace of Fine Arts in the Marina District of San Francisco, California, is a monumental structure originally constructed for the 1915 Panama-Pacific Exposition in order to exhibit works of art presented there. One of only a few surviving structures from the Exposition, it is still situated on its original site. It was rebuilt in 1965, and renovation of the lagoon, walkways, and a seismic retrofit were completed in early 2009. 📷 by @heroslens #architecture #palaceoffinearts #sanfrancisco #sfarchitecture #sanfranciscohistory #sf #sfca
The Women's Building is a women-led non-profit arts and education community center, which advocates self-determination, gender equality and social justice. The building has served as an event and meeting space since 1979, when it was purchased by the San Francisco Women's Center. The building is shielded from rising real estate costs in the Mission district because that group has owned the building since 1995.  The four-story building rents to multiple tenants and serves over 20,000 women a year. 📷 by @sfhilltopstay #womensbuilding #sanfrancisco #sf #wallmural #streetart
