With never before seen pictures and expert research, Author/Historian John Martini will present the story of the Sutro Baths from its beginning to its fiery end and present his newly published definitive book on the subject, Sutro’s Glass Palace, The Story of the Sutro Baths.
Sutro Baths is one of San Francisco’s “lost landmarks.” Built by Comstock millionaire Adolph Sutro as the world’s largest indoor swimming complex, it dazzled visitors with its Victorian opulence when it opened in 1894. Attractions include seven swimming pools, a museum, restaurants, tropical plants, promenades, and seating for thousands of spectators. Never profitable, the Baths remained a popular destination for San Franciscans until it burned in 1966.
