Transcript Gas Company's Pier On the opposite page is illustrated a solid earth and stone pier built by us for the San Francisco Gas Light Company at the foot of Buchanan Street, San Francisco. This pier is 600 feet long and 200 feet wide, and was built by constructing a sheet pile bulkhead around the exterior of same, and riprapping the outside of this timber bulkhead with rock. The space inclosed by the timber and rock bulkhead was then filled in with dredged material with our Hydraulic Dredge "Oakland," thus deepening the navigable water on the outside of the pier and making the fill at the same time. The cost of this pier was about $100,000. It was built in 1894.
