It was a lot like 1905: The Golden Gate Park Band played, the dignitaries made speeches and the women wore hats � asymmetrical, feathered, some wicker and others felt � that drew attention from the festivities. The occasion was the centennial celebration of the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals courthouse at Seventh and Market streets in San Francisco, which opened 100 years ago. The invite-only ceremony Monday featured a host of speakers and courtroom re-enactments. Kicking off the program was a series of short speeches in honor of the James Browning courthouse. Browning himself, together with Judge Harry Pregerson, arrived just as the band finished playing. Judge Sidney Thomas, wearing period garb, including a collar that resembled an orthopedic device, had the honor of delivering an abridged version of the opening address given in 1905 by Judge William Morrow. “I’m not sure it holds well with the test of time,” Thomas said before the address, adding that Judge Marsha Berzon talked him into playing the role. “She said I bore a resemblance,” he said. “I’m not sure if that’s a compliment.”
