Today’s Top 5

Hilltop castle

The turreted house at top left is still there. It's at 206 Bayview Avenue in Tiburon and was built in 1900.

We Have a Winner

I vote with Histry2 and rgraham after finding this pic at the top of the History page on the San Francisco Yacht Club website. Well done!

Tiburon-Belvedere

Photo was taken on Beach Road on Belvedere Island, California. The bare hills of Tiburon are in the background. Although the view is hard to duplicate today due to subsequent bay filling and construction, the row of gable-ended houses overhanging the water at right are a constant landmark.

Evidence

This was obviously a very popular spot for motorists to take in the view. Old cars were well known for "marking their territory" while stopped or parked. The roadway just forward and to the inside of the Jewett tells the tale.
