The San Francisco Call
NEW SAVINGS ' UNION BANK IS A MONUMENTAL STRUCTURE
CONTRAST SHOWN
OF OLD CORNERS
BEFORE THE FIRE
New Building Is Replica of
Famous Roman Temple,
the Pantheon
Work of Best Artists and Arth
sans of City and Will Last
for Ages
Tl.« Savings union bank -of San
Francisco is moving into the new build-
Ing at <3rant avenue, O'Farrell and
Market streets, and will begin business
there Tuesday.
This is one of the monumental build
ings of the new San Francisco. It Is
modeled after the Pantheon of Rome
and is purely classic.
President Drum, the directors and
the architects. Bliss & Faville, worked
over the plans a year before construc
tion was begun. When a start was
once made the work was carried on
with speed *and the building will be
occupied exactly a year from the time
;ft • was begun.
The new bank building is a conspicu
ous and beautiful object in almost the
center of the retail district. Its. light
granite walls" and tall, graceful col
umns, .surmounted by a pediment with
carved figures, give .it the appearance
of a public building. . . ;
Opposite it stands the newly com
pleted Union trust company building,
of massive and stately style. These
two new structures form a striking
contrast to these corners before the
'Where the Savings Union now stands
was then a five story frame" ..structure,
occupied by a saloon on the ground
floor, with offices' above. On the Union
trust corner there was then a low,
wooden shop of one story and shabby
in the extreme. The two pictures
united on this page show the trans
formation from that period -to the
present.
It was the endeavor of the .officers of
the Savings union to make their new
building; the- embodiment "of the finest
work of San Francisco artists and arti
sans. : ; / ..', *jV_-. '<* ' \u25a0;
Working in conjunction : with the
architects were several of the city's
leading artists. Haig Patigian de
nlgn'id the head of the goddess carved
in the pediment above the front en
fltr&nee. as well as the two eagles rising
tn' flight.:
" \Arthur Putnam designed the buffalo
pads on the large candelabra and on
iStl'the lighting fixtures:
The monumental" bronze 'doors of the
Tiuilding were designed . by Arthur
Mathews. The bronze. panels show four
successful periods in the race develop
ment of California— firs* the Indian,
then the Frarciscan missionary, fol
lowed by the miner, and, last of all, a
youth. symbolizing the new 6an Fran
tisco. in the act -of csrvthg a city out
of a block of stone". '.'.-.
ArtiFt John Zeile designed the direc
tors' room, which is up under the dome.
Tlr» style of this room" is French Re
naissance. The spirit of the per'od Is
carried out in the mural decorations,
the woodwork and the furniture.
The interior of the bank Is finished
in marble and bronze in soft tones. The
counter and paneling of the walls is of
Tavernelle marble from Verona, Italy.
It is a crea.m colored stone, admirably
adapted to fine carving.
The counter screen Is of the same
marble, the pilasters of which are high
ly carved with th«> original symbol of
the bank, a beehive, and a model of the
present building.
The bronze trimmings of the win
dows are In a soft bluish gray finish,
to harmonize with the marble.
The most striking features of the
interior are the two massive granite
columns in all of the four sides, flanked
with pilasters at the corners and highly
carved capitals.
Above these rises the attic story,
with pilasters and panels In Caen stone,
supporting the vaulted ceiling, with
skylight in the center.
The interior is a perfect square 63
feet 6 Inches on the sides and 60 feet
--from the floor to the dome. Subdued
1i fc -::t filters in through bronze grill
work of the windows and from above.
The artificial Ilght'is from two large
bronze candelabra. at the entrance and
from lights concealed behind cornices.
The effect is very harmonious, 1 blending
with the mellow tones 'of the furnish
ings.
The structure is of great solidity,
having a steel frame embedded in rein
forced concrete. It is practically a solid
monolith and ts believed to be inde
structible.
Marble staircases lead down into' the
basement, where the -safety deposit
vault and various accessories connected
with it are located. The door to the
treasure vault Is a solid piece of Har
veyized nickelplated steel weighing 18
tons, made by the Bethlehem steel
works. The whole construction of the
vaults Is of armor plate, the same ma
terial as used on battleships..
There is a large 1 * number of pri
vate rooms finished In marble for the
use! of patrons. There Is also on, the
•basement floor a reception and lounging
room for the convenience of the pa
trons of the bank.'
The new building^will bring together
the San Francisco Savings union and
the old Savinfca and Loan society, which
were consolidated in September.- The
latter society dates from 1857, the Sav
ings union from 1862, and the two'com
bined x'irtually cover the financial hisi
tory of San Franclspo.
The bank has deposits of more than
$20,000,000 and a capital and surplus of
$3,500,000. ;

NEW TERMINAL
HOTEL CREDIT TO
FERRY DISTRICT
Double the Size of the Old
Hostelry and Is of Higher
Class
Lease Based on Positive As- -
snrance of Exposition and
Has Novel Clauses
- The new Terminal hotel- to be built
in Market street, within 200 feet of the
ferry building, will be the first large
hotel' to be built in" that district since
the fire.
It will have a frontage of 127 feet Jn
the north side of Market street opposite
Steuart street and will extend back to
Sacramento with a varying depth up to
200 feet.;.
. The hotel will be six stories high,
with .300 ." guest chambers, besides a
spacious lobby and stores on the ground
floor. "William .. Curlett & Son are the
architects^
The building will be a steel frame
structure,"', with gray stone front and a
handsome marquee at the entrance.
Most of the rooms will have baths in
connection. ..The halls "will be wide and
all * the v rooms will have outside ex
posure. ; '*3BapS|
The building will cost $250,000. Con
struction will : be begun in May and
work pushed so that It will be ready for
occupancy in; October.
The new hotel will stand on part of
the site^of- the old Terminal hotel, bjit
will' be.twice as large and of a much
higher class. It will maintain a popu
lar scale of prices with first class
service. , .
- The hotel will be under. the manage
ment .'of Otto Muller, one of the pro- «
prietors of the Bismarck cafe. Mailer
and a number of other local men have •
formed a corporation, which has taken
a ; lease of : the building for 10 years
from the builders, M. J. Sarage and
members of the Prengle company, who
have • incorporated. : themselves las the
Terminal investment company.
:A notable feature of. this lease^t* that
it is 'based; on -.the ; positive expectation"
of the Panama-Pacific exposition •'being
held here in 1913. Vvl' \\ :
The lease averages $40,000 a year for
10 ' years,'- with privilege of extension
for 10 years more, making a total of
$800,000. It is on a graduated scale,
reaching the highest amount during
the fair year, and declining after that,
and again, rising to the same figure
during.the final years of the tenure. '
. Manager Muller took the lease be
cause of, 1 his" conviction that, the ex
position is a certainty.'. The success of
Otto^ Muller and his brothers Fritz and
Charles in the management of /.the
Bismarck :'slnce the fire has been phe
nomenal. /While other. cafe proprietors
were^hesitating about coming into, the
downtown district, the Muller brothers
showed their : faith by going in on a
large scale and were amply rewarded.
• Otto Muller will manage the'new
hotel on his. own account. He has had
extensive experience in the hotel and
restaurant business in exposition cities,
having been established at all the large
expositions In the last 10 years — at
Buffalo, . Norfolk (Va.); Omaha, St.
Louis. Portland and Seattle. He ex
presses opinion that the Panama
Pacific will be the greatest and most
