I love local history and San Francisco’s got plenty of history. Erected in 1896, this beautiful dome was part of the Emporium (later Emporium-Capwell), and after many changes, it’s now part of the charming Westfield San Francisco Shopping Centre. So glad they perserved this beautiful landmark. To read more about the history of the Emporium dome, click HERE and HERE. Cheers!
