Notes Newscopy: "Top: The 84-year-old Humphries mansion at Hyde and Chestnut-sts, its aging parapets and and battlements built of sturdy oak that came to San Francisco in 1852, destined, shippers thought, to become a clipper ship. Builders plan to tear it down to be replaced by an apartment house. Dr. Walter Heil of De Young Museum would have it retained as a typical building of early San Francisco. Lower left: Heavy iron fireplaces, almost the only remnants of the old-time furnishings, are set in every room. Lower right: A four-posted bed, whose mahogany posts reach almost to the lofty ceiling."
