Destruction around Union Square.  The tall steel skeleton left of center is the Whittell Building - then known as the Union League Building. It was under construction at the time of the earthquake, later finished, and still standing on Geary Street.  The Butler Building at right, also under construction at the time of the quake, had walls peel away during the quake, killing several people. The building later became I. Magnin's, and its windows shattered during the 1989 earthquake. Several people on the street were injured by falling glass. The Butler Building is now part of Macy's. (sfmuseum.org)
