Thanks for posting these great pictures. In the above photo, the Bicknell building is not there. I think it was put up around 1890-92 right next to the Potomac Block, thus dating the photo. I was a kid in the 1950s and just too young to get around and see all these wonderful old buildings at the end of their lives.

Two of my very favorite structures were the California Bank building and the Bryson Block. They were such picturesque buildings with their bay windows, towers and profuse decoration. And I think they were designed by one or both of the Newsom brothers.
