Basement of the Old Mint (San Francisco)

Those are gas pipes for the gas-lights.­

Built in 1874 during the gold rush, the Old Mint was once the busiest mint in the United States.­ One of the last government buildings constructed in the Greek Revival style, it is also the city's oldest stone buildings.­ The mint operations were moved to a new facility in 1933.­

The Old Mint has been closed and abandoned since 1993, threatened by demolition until the federal government transfered the building ownership to the city of San Francisco in 2003.­
