Old City Hall: Corruption & Racism in 19th Century San Francisco | Shaping San Francisco | City History Lectures

Old City Hall: Corruption & Racism in 19th Century SF Glenn Lym presents an architectural and political history of the 27-year project of building the original City Hall, a building that fell down in the 1906 earthquake, revealing deeply inadequate and corrupt building practices. Meanwhile, when contruction began in the 1870s, the white working class was raging against capitalism and the Chinese in equal parts, providing the impetus for the 1882 federal Chinese Exclusion Act. Chris Carlsson will join the conversation to connect the social and physical histories.
