Over the years, San Francisco has grown by filling the bay and building on top of that fill. The wiggly lines show the original shore and how it moved over time.

Clouds and lighthouses decorated the glass in the area that represented the bay water.

A sign on the concrete wall next to the exhibit credited the artists and described the reason for the exhibit.

The corner of Main and Harrison did not exist back then. Also the Embarcadero ended rather than wrapping around as it does today.
