Festive Historic Landmark in San Francisco

There are 2 famous landmarks in San Francisco – one is the Golden Gate Bridge; the other is the Ferry Building. The latter opened in 1898, and was a major train stop for trains from the East, as well as a ferry terminal for transportation between the City, The Marin County, and the East Bay. Its steel-framed structure not only enabled it to survive the two big earthquakes (1906 and 1989) but also formed the basis of many buildings on the water all over the world.

It is now a major marketplace, and has retail shops, a farmer’s market as well as first-class offices on the second and third floors.

Walking through a few of my favorite shops:

    1. Thanks for your nice comments, Stefania! I really like this historic site which underwent a huge renovation after the 1989 earthquake. Now it is a major commercial building and tourist spot. Have a blessed week, too! Warm wishes from simple cherishes.
