CIVIC CENTER

CIVIC CENTER - The buildings at the San Francisco Civic Center are pictured in this blog post. This includes SF City Hall, Asian Art Museum, SF Public Library, Supreme Court of CA and Bill Graham Auditorium. Additionally, there is an image taken from a post card of City Hall; prior to 1906. This plot of land was originally part of the Yerba Buena Cemetery. Eventually all of the SF cemeteries (except Mission Dolores and Presidio) were exhumed and most of them were moved to Colma. The original City Hall was destroyed by the famous 1906 earthquake. The building was again compromised in the 1989 earthquake. SF City Hall was renovated again and reopened in 1999.
