The statue was so securely mounted that on April 18, 1906, when the City Hall and the city around it lay in ruins from the great earthquake-fire, it continued to stand at the peak of the now-exposed steel tower. After workmen brought it down, the statue fell from a wagon and the 700-pound head broke off.Mayor Jim Rolph was the visionary who insisted that the City of San Francisco build this magnificent structure.The floor of the elevators is wood, inlaid with brass, and features the official monogram of San Francisco.George R.
