The New San Francisco album contains 24 mounted prints taken by Edward N. Sewell in 1909 representing the state of recovery
of San Francisco three years after the devastating earthquake and fire of 1906 which destroyed much of the city. The album
primarily features scenes of the city's financial district, mostly along Market Street and its cross streets. Buildings pictured
include the Phelan Building, the Crocker Building, First National Bank, the Palace Hotel, the Chronicle Building, the Monadnock
Building, Mutual Bank, the Aronson Building, the Call Building, the Roos Brothers Building, Humboldt Bank, the Flood Building,
the Emporium, the Westbank Building, the Fyfe Building, the White House, the City of Paris, the Bank of California, and the
Hotel St. Francis. The album also includes a view from the top of the Ferry Building westward, showing the overall development
of the portion of the city most damaged by the 1906 disaster.
