Per numerous newspaper ads from the 1860s, the San Francisco company went by the name Vulcan Iron Works. It was not unusual in the 19th century for companies in different cities to adopt the same name even though they were unrelated.

Builder should be Vulcan Iron Foundry - a different company from the Vulcan Iron Works (this mistake has been repeated in several books). The Vulcan Foundry was located in San Francisco, while the Vulcan Iron Works was located in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
