Lotta Crabtree Fountain

Posted by on April 1, 2016
The Lotta Crabtree Fountain was a gift to the people of San Francisco in 1875 as a sign of Lotta's love for the city that so admired her as a vaudevillian during the Gold Rush. She went on to become one of the highest paid female performers  of her time. The fountain is the oldest surviving monument following the earthquake of 1906. It became the meeting place for families to review the list of missing and found people. To this day annually  on April 18 at 5:12 A.M.  a ceremony of remembrance is held at the fountain. The two then photos date to 1905.
