Progress Comes to the Hibernia Bank Building in the Tenderloin

The Hibernia Bank Building (San Francisco Landmark #130) at One Jones Street and McAllister recently got a powerwash scrubbing – it seems this green and white elephant is beginning to wake up.

Wake up hibernus Hibernia, wake up. Spring is coming.
