Where Is It? Round Two

Where Is It #2

“Where Is It? (#2)” (2012)

The winner of Round One works for an architectural firm in the old Hale Brothers Building at 901 Market, so of course he immediately recognized the location of the first photo. For this round, I’m leveling the playing field with a location that is far more obscure. Hint: it’s most likely not where you think it is.

Once again, the first person to correctly identify the location will receive a signed postcard of the photo. Have fun and good luck!

UPDATE What, no takers? Alright, here’s another clue: it’s somewhere in the Tenderloin.

UPDATE #2 Alright, this has dragged on for too long, so here’s one last clue with which I’m essentially giving it away: take a walk along the north side of Geary between Larkin and Hyde. As I’ve already stated in the comments, it’s NOT the Alhambra Apartments. To win, you’ll have to give me the exact address, though you’ll get brownie points if you can also name the building.

Where Is It? #1

“Where Is It? (#1)” (2012)

How well do you know San Francisco? Just for the fun of it, I’m going to occasionally post a photo of some unnamed location. The first person to correctly identify the location will receive a signed postcard of my photo. Have fun and good luck!

WE HAVE A WINNER! Congratulations to redseca2, who nailed it first. It’s the Bank of Italy Building at 1 Powell Street, designed by Walter Danforth Bliss and erected in 1920, with the Flood Building in the background. It seems I might have to make things more difficult in the second round!
