    The City of Paris opened during the Gold Rush and became one of San Francisco's premier department stores for over 120 years. The first watercolor depicts its location on Grant and Geary streets. After the earthquake of 1906, the store moved to the Hobart Mansion on Van Ness and Washington streets, depicted in the second work.
