Sutro Heights Album - Introduction

Sutro Heights Album image

Christine Miller, who has helped our project in so many ways, was kind enough to lend us a treasure from her collection so that we may scan it and share it with you!

The "Album of Sutro Heights" is a simple paper souvenir book featuring images of Sutro Heights, which were obviously taken from photographic originals. Dating from somewhere between 1889 and 1894, the album shows the statuary, buildings, and topiary wonders with which Adolph Sutro embellished his estate.

We hope you enjoy the tour, and thanks again to Christine!
