Content/DescriptionThis view is the fourth plate of Fardon's seven-plate panorama (taken from Stockton and Sacramento Streets). Ships at the waterfront and Yerba Buena Island are in the distance. At the left is the City Hall on Portsmouth Square (formerly the Jenny Lind Theatre), just to its right and toward the bay is the Montgomery Block, and beyond that is the incomplete Customs House. The dome and west face of the Merchants' Exchange building are visible beyond the Customs House. At center is the exterior of Ford's Daguerrean Gallery (the photographic studio of James M. Ford) at Clay and Kearny Streets, which is upstairs from Keyes & Co. Clothing Store.
