Businesses in San Francisco around 1900 : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I recently was given a picture that is approx. 110 year old. On the back is a business name Vickery, Atkins and Torrey located at 236 Post Street. Does anyone know of this business and how long it was in existence?

According to the 1910 San Francisco Directory:

"VICKERY, ATKINS & TORREY (Inc) W K Vickery pres, F C Torrey vice-pres, J H P Atkins sec, pictures, picture frames and art goods, 550 Sutter, above Powell."

You could probably establish how long it was in business by searching through the city directories.

The one old photograph that i have is of "Robert S. Atkins Store" Of San Francisco, Ca. Would this be the same place of business? If anyone has any information about this store please email me at, Thanks, J.L.

just a guess - but, i bet it was one of the original partners of Roos - Atkins. they used to be at 5th and Market ( 799 Market St ) and later they had a location in Stonestown.
