Why San Francisco? Just because. It's stunning and has a complicated history. Some of the more interesting facts about San Fran’s City Hall that caught our attention:
City Hall was re-opened in 1915
replacing an earlier City Hall that was completely destroyed during the
1906 earthquake. The building
fell foul to another earthquake in 1989, which damaged the structure and
twisted the dome four inches on its base.
A depiction of Father Time is seen on
the east wall of the main Rotunda. An hour glass is in his hand – history
is seen on his left, and the future on his right.
The following films have been shot there;
The Towering Inferno (1974), Class Action (1991), The Wedding Planner
(2001) and Milk (2008).
Joe DiMaggio and Marilyn Monroe were
married at City Hall in 1954.
