The beautifully restored Lotta’s Fountain was used during the 1906 earthquake and subsequent fires as a meeting point for locals. Over the years, many of the city’s leading political figures have shown up alongside with survivors on the anniversary date to honor and have remembrance events for all those who survived and helped to restore order and rebuilding of the... 更多
Ok history buffs - The fountain was commissioned by Lotta Crabtree as a gift to the city of San Francisco. It was dedicated on September 9, 1875. The cast iron fountain served as a meeting point during the 1906 San Francisco earthquake and resulting fires, which is commemorated by a metal panel attached to the monument. Very pretty.
There's not a whole lot to this memorial to those killed in the great earthquake and fire of 1906. This is the spot where survivors used to gather every year to mark the anniversary of one of the greatest natural disasters in U.S. history. This part of the city was obliterated. The fountain was commissioned by Lotta Crabtree as a... 更多
We took the hop on / off bus and we heard about the importance of this statue but we didn’t get off. We learned it had withstood fires, earthquakes and still remains today thus it is relished by the people of San Francisco and signifies hope and endurance. However, upon closer inspection, it’s really not that pleasing to the eye.... 更多
We whizzed past this on the Big Bus tour. Lotta's Fountain is regarded as one of the oldest surviving monuments in the city. Donated in 1875 and it survived the earthquake of 1906.
This fountain known as Lotta's Fountain is one of the oldest standing landmarks in San Francisco that has withstood earthquakes and time but was recently refurbished as it had been left unkept for years. If you are walking down Market Street you won't miss it...
A walk down Market Street from the trolley car turn around to the bay will take history lovers past some nice landmarks; one of them is Lotta's Fountain. I was enchanted by this structure. Unfortunately, it sits at a very busy intersection, making it difficult to photograph. Those who appreciate history will want to pause here.
My wife and I was shown Lotta's Fountain during an architectural tour of San Francisco that we took. Lotta's Fountain is the oldest surviving monument in San Francisco & was donated by singer/dancer Charlotte Mignon Lotta Crabtree in 1875. After the earthquake in 1906, the fountain was one of the few remaining structures on Market Street & became a central... 更多
I just accidentally found this by walking around San Francisco at night. There isn't much information around it to really tell you what this or why it's relevant. But you can tell it is old and is not an eye-sore. But definitely don't skip anything just to see this.
It is a simple fountain that is not hard to find, and you walk right past it if you are exploring San Francisco's downtown. It isn't the fountain that is import, in fact, it really isn't all that pretty, but its history is so very very important to San Francisco.
