Name
Crabtree, Lotta
Notes
Lotta Crabtreee started her career as a child star, singing, dancing (her dancing instructor had been Lola Montez), playing the banjo, and acting in comedic roles in California mining towns in 1855. She moved to San Francisco in 1857, and became one of the most beloved performers the City has ever seen, as well as one of the richest actress of her time. In 1864, she moved on to a successful stage career in New York, but returned to San Francisco often. In 1875, she donated an ornate, 24-foot-tall bronze fountain to the San Francisco, to show her appreciation of the city that gave her her start.

Production notes
About 250,000 people gathered in the streets around Lotta's Fountain in downtown San Francisco to hear Luisa Tetrazzini give a free concert on Christmas Eve, 1910. According to her contract with Oscar Hammerstein, impresario of the Metropolitan Opera Company, Tetrazzini was barred from singing under any management but his. Tetrazzini disputed the contract, and got around the restriction by staging a free concert (against her policy of ever singing for nothing) for her favorite audience, the people of San Francisco. At the end of the concert, the crowd joined in in singing "Auld Lang Syne." By all accounts, it was a powerful, moving event that deeply touched those present. Tetrazzini was to talk about it as her most enthusiastic audience ever, and as her "night of nights," for the rest of her life. SFPALM

Tetrazzini, Luisa
Notes
Luisa Tetrazzini was a struggling singer when she finally made her mark at San Francisco's Tivoli Opera House in 1904. Considered one of the greatest coloratura sopranos of all time, Tetrazzini joined the Metropolitan Opera Company a few years later, but never forgot San Francisco's genorisity toward her, and returned often to sing for its citizens. The recipe for Chicken Tetrazzini was created in her honour by the chefs at San Francisco's Palace Hotel, around 1910. SFPALM

Place notes
This 24-foot-tall cast iron fountain, ornately decorated the bronze lion heads and other embellishments, was donated to the City of San Francisco by actress Lotta Crabtree as a token of affection for the City that had brought her wealth and success. The fountain was one of the only downtown structures to survive the Great Earthquake and Fire of 1906, and still stands at the corner of Market and Kearny Streets, across from the famous Palace Hotel. Before the rise of automobile traffic, the area around the fountain was the site of many different types of outdoor concerts and other performances, and a bandstand was erected next to it for some years. As of 2005, it is still the site of and annual memorial service held in the early morning of every April 18th to commemmorate the disasters of 1906.SFPALM
