This marker is one of a series intended to commemorate the 150 years of the Port of San Francisco. It is composed of a captioned photograph and text entitled Did you know... mounted on a cylindrical metal pylon.

Streetcars from Haight, Geary, Valencia, Castro, McAllister, Ocean Streets and elsewhere all converged at the Ferry Building, circa 1916. In its heyday in the early 1900s, more than 50 million ferry passengers passed through the Ferry Building annually, making it the second busiest transportation terminal in the world, behind Charing Cross in London.

Did you know...

The Ferry Building stands on a veritable forest of 5,117 piles driven deep into the underlying bay mud. When opened in 1898, the Ferry Building was the largest building built over the water anywhere in the world.
