The days of the steamship, are no longer even a distant memory. Once, over a hundred years ago the steamship built San Francisco, shipping mail, people and goods to fuel the California Gold Rush. They built the pier to ease the flow of goods in the busy bay area. The steamship rebuilt the city after the earthquake and the resulting fire destroyed everything.

The silent sentinel of yesterday.
