The Emporium
San Francisco, Cal.
The Emporium was a department store founded in 1896 by Adolph Feiss as a co-operative of individually owned shops at 835 Market St. between 4th & 5th Streets. It was designed by San Francisco architect Albert Pissis, one of the first Americans to be trained at the 'Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. It withstood the 1906 earthquake, but was destroyed by the subsequent fire and rebuilt in 1908. In the late 1980's, the flagship 835 Market St store was connected to the new San Francisco Shopping Centre, now known as the Westfield San Francisco Centre.
When I was actively working in the construction business we did a lot of remodel/restoration work on thr S.F. Shopping Centre.
