History of the Financial District - North of Market

greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I'm researching the history of the Financial District. I believe that the area beyond Montgomery was filled in after the Earthquake. Does anyone know where I can find more information on the developement of this area, especially around the Transamerica Pyramid and the Embarcadero Center? Thank You

Believe it or not, most of this area was actually filled in during the 1850s. As I mentioned in another recent post about this, a good introduction to the subject can be found in "Annals of San Francisco" (originally published in 1854--available in a recent re-publishing. No, I have no connection with that book, it's just a great resource for so many things.)
