San Francisco Transcription: A Longer History

 

A series of posts about San Francisco transcription and the neighborhood that is home to Tigerfish Transcribing, purveyor of transcription services (audio transcription services, video transcription services, legal transcription services, corporate transcription services, and more).

You may know that the corner of Pacific and Columbus in San Francisco, where Tigerfish Transcribing, premier San Francisco transcription company, has been located for over twenty years, was once at the heart of the Barbary Coast, the red light district that sprung up in the wake of the California Gold Rush and was infamous for gambling, lawlessness, and prostitution from the 1850s to the early 20th century.

But did you know that this intersection has much bigger skeletons in its closet?

We’re talking gigantic skeletons, enormous skeletons, humongous skeletons, mammoth skeletons.  Yes, mammoth skeletons!

San Francisco Transcription at a Bay Area Hub

 

According to an entertaining article in SFGate , during the 1983 construction of the Pansini building on Pacific Avenue, workers found fossilized bones about 15 feet below the street surface.  The contractor apparently wanted them to cover up the find, fearing it would slow his work.  But one of them called a friend at the California Academy of Sciences, who came and dug around.  He found the remains of three Columbian mammoths and a giant bison, animals who lived from 240,000 years ago to 11,000 years ago.  It turned out to be the largest ever discovery of Pleistocene-era bones in San Francisco.

Where we now work–providing corporate and financial transcription services, medical transcription, expertly edited transcripts and verbatim audio-to-text and video-to-text documents–was once a hub of another kind.
