Artist's Description

“The Portals of the Past is an unusual little monument at Golden Gate Park. Standing on the shores of Lloyd Lake (just to the west of the DeYoung Museum), these columns actually have an interesting history. During the big earthquake and fire of 1906, most of Nob Hill was flattened by the destruction. However somehow, the entranceway to the mansion of A.N. Towne managed to ”_blank" href=“http://www.sanfranciscomemories.com/portals/rui... rel="nofollow">remain standing</a>. It was later removed and brought over to Golden Gate Park, where it still stands today, as a symbol of the perserverence of San Francisco… working towards an optimistic future, regardless of the tragedy of the past."
