Identifying Photograph - Herring's Mill : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread

I have a photograph of Herring's Mill which belonged to Richard Herring d 20 October 1913 at 666-6th Ave, San Francisco. The photograph shows the end of an elevated peaked roof building with stacks ocut timber on a loading dock. The numbers 557, 559 and 561 appear on the end of the building. I presume these to be street numbers i.e. the building was on three blocks. How can I identify the location of this building?

The 1923 Phone Directory lists Herring's Mill at 557 Brannan.

The numbers you have are lot numbers. I assume the 666 6th Avenue is his residence which would put it in the Richmond District near Golden Gate Park.

Good luck in your research.

my 1907 SF city directory shows Herrings Mill was at 557 to 561 Brannan St. the numbers are street addresses.
