Ferry Building modelSan Francisco Ferry Building

1:2000 scale miniature paper model, about 4 inches wide by 1.75 inches tall

Architect A. Page Brown designed this 660-foot long passenger terminal, completed in 1898, which soon became the second-busiest transit terminal in the world. Auto traffic on the new Golden Gate and Bay bridges reduced demand for ferries and when the Embarcadero Freeway was built in front of the terminal in 1959 the Ferry Building seemed forgotten. In 1992 the freeway was finally removed, and in 2003 the building was restored with a new, vibrant marketplace.
