The remains of the gold rush supply ship, the General Harrison, lie beneath this building. The sidewalk treatment reminds us that Clay Street was once a wharf at the edge of San Francisco Bay with tidal mud flats to the north, and in 1850 ships like the General Harrison were moored alongside and used as storehouses. The sculpture on the building was inspired by the waterline shape, frames and planking of the ship.

The Sidewalk was designed by Topher Delany and the ship sculpture by Curtis Hollenback and Topher Delaney. They were contributed by Club Quarter under the City of San Francisco percent for the art program.
