San Francisco Transcription: A Longer History Part 2
Here is another chapter in the history of San Francisco transcription – the story of ancient skeletons found right here in the neighborhood where a venerable San Francisco transcription service is alive and thriving! This is one of a series of posts about San Francisco transcription, and the neighborhood that is home to Tigerfish Transcribing.
Continuing with the story of the mammoth bones found on our corner:
Columbian mammoths were 12 feet tall, and giant bison weighed two tons! They are part of a category of animals, now extinct, known as megafauna. San Francisco was home to many of these huge animals.
According to the scientists Peter Rodda and Nina Baghai, who wrote about the discovery here near the Tigerfish Transcribing building, the area near Pacific and Columbus was most likely a bog or pond. The animals were either trapped in sticky mud, or a drought made a drying-up pond a dangerous and crowded place, and that’s why so many animals died in this one spot.
Who knew? What is now a high-tech home to a transcribing company providing myriad transcription services to clients in San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Seattle, and anywhere transcription is needed–was once the local watering hole to mammoths and other megafauna!
We do focus group transcription on a regular basis, but this was a different kind of focus group!
