Program – Sutro’s Glass Palace
Tuesday, April 14, 2020 - Friday, December 31, 2021
It’s the second Tuesday of the month—time for the SFHS monthly program. We can’t hold our usual gathering at Roosevelt Middle School, so we’re bringing the presentation to you.
This week local historian John Martini takes viewers on a virtual tour through Adolph Sutro’s glass palace–San Francisco’s gargantuan, improbable, one-of-a-kind amusement park and play land, built on the city’s western edge at Ocean Beach. You’ll visit the swimming pools of Sutro’s Baths, the ice-skating rink and museum, and the creaky little gondola that once offered aerial views of the crashing waves.
