The Portals of the Past is an unusual little monument at Golden Gate Park on the shores of Lloyd Lake. During the earthquake and fire of 1906, most of Nob Hill was flattened by the destruction. The entranceway to the Towne Mansion remained standing. It was later removed and brought to Golden Gate Park where it still stands today, as a symbol of the perserverence of San Francisco working towards an optimistic future regardless of the tragedy of the past.
