Harold Lukens Doolittle worked in a wide variety of graphic art processes, including photography. But he is most noted for his aquatints, which allowed him to create soft focused, tonalist qualities that were popular among Bay Area painters at the turn of the 20th century. In this image, we look from the bay toward the Ferry Building (built in 1915) on the embarcadero and downtown San Francisco. Created in 1918, this print depicts the foggy, industrial shipping corridor of the Golden Gate well before the bridge was completed in 1933.
