Mission High School San Francisco

Sunday was a great day to visit Mission High School just adjacent to Mission Dolores Park. Mission High school is the oldest and first comprehensive High School in the west, built in the late 1800's. It survived the 1906 earthquake, but was destroyed in a 1922 fire. The school is in a similar style to the Mission Dolores Basilica down the street. I pass this beautiful building almost everyday, but Sunday was a perfect day to get up close. I am not sure what company was part of the tower construction, but I do not think it is Gladding McBean TerraCotta. Perhaps someone out there knows....
