Description

This is a view of San Francisco Bay from a hill in the Presidio, the former San Francisco military base which is now part of Golden Gate National Recreation Area. The roofs of the barracks are visible at the bottom of the hill and in the distance is the octagonal rotunda of the Palace of Fine Arts, built for the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition. Out in the bay Alcatraz Prison (known as The Rock) is visible at right.
