What is that old building on Washington Square with three wraiths atop it?

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

There is a wonderful old building on Washington Square, opposite the pagoda. It is nestled among much taller, newer buildings, and so looks a little out of place. On the cornice are three stone wraiths, looking out over the park. Can you tell me the name and history of this wonderful building? Thank you.

Do you have a street address on it? It might be in the Splendid Survivors book, or we might be able to locate it on a history site by the address.
