THE DOME ATOP THE EMPORIUM The Emporium department store had a publicly accessible area on the roof on the western side of the dome. From the top sales floor, one could climb four or five steps to a door that opened onto an open area that was carpeted with green astro-turf. There were high walls around the perimeter and the western side of the dome formed the eastern boundary. There were benches along the wall and a couple of picnic tables under an overhanging roof. Along the southern wall, parallel to Mission St., was a real cable car that had been hoisted up to the roof! You could climb onto the cable car and, I suppose that several generations of Emporium employees had their lunch there as I did, on several occasions. I regret not taking photos of the entire area when I shot the photos of the dome. I wonder what happened to the cable car?
