Just two years after its grand opening on March 21, 1904, the hotel experienced the ravages of The Great 1906 San Francisco Earthquake.Luckily, the structure of hotel withstood the quake, but the great fire that followed destroyed its interior. Like the city itself, it was restored virtually from its own ashes in the undamaged shell. In November 1907, The Westin St. Francis gloriously reopened its doors with 450 guest rooms. In commemoration, the great Magneta clock, the first master clock introduced to the West, and was installed in its place of honor in the lobby.
Since then, San Francisco society has been meeting under the clock for more than a century. In 1908, a third wing (pictured on plate) of the hotel was opened, and further additions followed, making The Westin St. Francis the largest hotel on the Pacific Coast at that time.The item "Vintage HOTEL ST.
