Ruins of Sutro Baths

01 Dec 2015 7 4 47
The Sutro Baths were constructed in 1894. The site had an ocean pool aquarium and a massive public bathhouse that could accommodate 10.000 people at one time. A classic Greek portal opened to a grandiose glass enclosure containing seven swimming pools at various temperatures. There were slides, trapezes, springboards and a high dive. The power of the Pacific Ocean during high tide could fill the 1.7 million gallons of water required for all the pools in just one hour. Over the decades the baths’ popularity declined. The end came in 1966 when a fire destroyed the structure.

Bouquet

07 May 2017 8 3 61
I have a great appreciation of the noble cactus. It is very hardy and can endure harsh conditions that would shrivel other plants.
