Bay Crossings clock
This was taken inside the San Francisco Ferry Building, Bay Crossings Shop.
This Clock's original setting was overlooking the lobby of the Oakland Mole Terminal in Oakland, circa 1930's. The Oakland Mole was the transfer point for rail riders connecting from the East Bay to ferries bound for San Francisco and points beyond. It was essentially the East Bay Ferry Building.
When the Oakland Mole was demolished, unknown persons saved the clock dial, though its workings were lost. For about half a century it was passed from person to person for safekeeping, ending up in the enlightened care of Dick McNight of San Francisco, who made it available to Bay Crossings.
The historic San Francisco Ferry Building was first built in 1898 as the city's transportation center. Its distinctive tower punctuates the waterfront, and since a 2003 renovation, it's become one of the city's premiere stops for foodies who love its boutique food shops, restaurants and the weekly farmers market.
