Excerpt from The City That Is: The Story of the Rebuilding of San Francisco in Three Years

Inutile things. It is plain that there has come into modern mechanics a new method, its scope as remarkable as its speed of operation, which surpasses such feats as even a dreamer could lay to the credit of the blacksmith of the gods on Olympus. Vulcan has the solace of much good company, for the San Francisco achievement crowds back into his class the engineers of Babel, the pyramid builders, and a long line of wonder-workers in construction, each great enough in his own day.
