The history of the Cliff House is both incredible and tragic. As I watch this video, I am reminded of what I heard a speaker say one time. He said, "There are no material things in your life that can't be taken from you in a matter of minutes by a match or a natural disaster." I think it puts everything into perspective.
One thing I love about this video is the fashion of the time. The Victorians sure knew how to cover everything up with layers and layers of fabric.
I hope you enjoy this post. I think I will make Saturday's posts historical in nature, and particularly focused on San Francisco history.
