San Francisco discovered in Game of Thrones
This cgi from Game of Thrones shows the San Francisco Palace of Fine Arts in the background, and a second shot of the same dome enlarged behind it. The buildings in front were photographed in Malta. Ned Stark is about to be decapitated: Joffrey and retinue are on the platform to the left, waiting for the Lord of Winterfell who will enter through the portal at the right.
The Palace of Fine Arts was built for the Panama-Pacific Exposition of 1915. Obviously its creator Bernard Maybeck, shown below at home with his family around 1910, would have been completely cool with its appearance in Game of Thrones.
+ Clicking embiggens as always.
