Tammy brought us a great guest of honor on Monday. Annabelle Marsh Piercy came with a photo and some clippings about her grandfather George Turner Marsh.

GT Marsh was a pioneer to the west side and the guy who maybe named the Richmond the Richmond (one story goes that way). He lived in a large house at 12th and Clement in the 1800s and put together the Japanese Tea Garden for the Midwinter Fair. Annabelle is a great lady to chat with!

Frank Dunnigan brought us that great Women's Chamber of Commerce scrapbook he's written about, and I still want to see Paul in that Sutro Baths bathing suit...
