: : I would like to the date that Lotta Crabtree contributed Lotta's fountain to San Francisco (Market Street). It is on the fountain, but I am not near there. Also I would like to know the date when Luisa Tetrazzini sang there and why? To console survivors of the 1906 Earthquake?

Lotta Crabtree donated it in 1875. Closeup pictures at:

Luisa Tetrazzini sang at Lotta's Fountain, Christmas Eve, 1910, San Francisco. Lantern slide at:
