The ruins of Sutro Baths
Lincoln Park, San Francisco, California

In its prime this was the largest public baths in the world, with seven pools, most of them cold ocean water. Now it is an interesting set of ruins within the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Not many people still remember the old Sutro Baths, because it closed, then burned, and was demolished in 1966. But I went there in 1961 for a friend's birthday party. We marveled at the huge glass domes, one remaining swimming pool, and bizarre coillection of artifacts.
