San Francisco journalist Bret Harte first wrote as "The Bohemian" in ''The Golden Era'' in 1861, with this persona taking part in many satirical doings, the lot published in his book ''Bohemian Papers'' in 1867. Harte wrote, "Bohemia has never been located geographically, but any clear day when the sun is going down, if you mount Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco), you shall see its pleasant valleys and cloud-capped hills glittering in the West..."

(Image:MarketStreetSanFran.JPG) Almost immediately after the quake re-planning and reconstruction plans were hatched to quickly rebuild the city. One of the more famous and ambitious plans, proposed before the fire, came from famed urban planner, Daniel Burnham. His bold plan called for Haussmann (Baron Haussmann) style avenues, boulevards, and arterial thoroughfares that radiated across the city, a massive civic center complex with classical structures, what would have been the largest urban park in the world, stretching from Twin Peaks to Lake Merced with a large athenaeum (wikt:athenaeum) at its peak, and various other proposals. This plan was dismissed at the time and by critics now, as impractical and unrealistic to municipal supply and demand. Property owners and the Real Estate industry were against the idea as well due to the amounts of their land the city would have to purchase to realize such proposals. While the original street grid was restored, many of Burnham's proposals eventually saw the light of day such as a neo-classical (Neoclassical architecture) civic center complex, wider streets, a preference of arterial thoroughfares, a subway under Market Street (Market Street Subway), a more people friendly Fisherman's Wharf (Fisherman's Wharf, San Francisco), and a monument to the city on Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco), Coit Tower. Loa, along with fellow students Mercury (Mercury (Marvel Comics)) and Onyxx (Onyxx (comics)), was tasked with keeping peace at the riots on Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco) after the mutant-hate group "Humanity Now!" marched from Sacramento to San Francisco to promote "Proposition X," displeasing many citizens of San Francisco, mutant and non-mutant alike. ''Dark Avengers Uncanny X-Men: Utopia #1'' The last hazards to California-bound vessels were the approach and entrance to San Francisco Bay. The Spanish had picked Monterey, California as their first Capitol due to its easier and safer approach to the harbor as well as having a better climate. The Farallon Islands off the mouth of San Francisco Bay were the graveyard of several ships, and the narrow, often fog-shrouded opening into San Francisco Bay was always a danger. Soon after the ship traffic built up ship pilots (Maritime pilot) who were knowledgeable of the bay were at work boarding incoming (and outgoing) ships and guiding the ships to a safe anchorage in the bay. By 1851 the tangle of ships in the Bay had led to the creation of a Harbourmaster who dictated where ships could drop anchor. Once inside San Francisco Bay, vessels were reported and identified to the people of San Francisco by the watchman with a telescope in a tower erected in September 1849 on Telegraph Hill, San Francisco. The watchman signaled the presence of incoming ships to the people in the city by hoisting up the telegraph mast one semaphore arm for a schooner, two for a brig, three for a ship and two raised about 45 degree semaphore signals for a paddle steamer. These signals were soon known by most residents of San Francisco and today are commemorated in the name Telegraph Hill. The first landing place on the north-eastern tip of the San Francisco peninsula was a rocky promontory below Telegraph Hill (Telegraph Hill, San Francisco) later known as Clarke's Point that jutted into the San Francisco Bay at the line of what is now Broadway and Battery Streets. Yerba Buena Cove swept inland from the subsequently named Clarke's Point to as far as Montgomery Street to the west, and further south and east to Rincon Point at the south of Market area at the foot of Folsom and Spear streets.
