The Maritime Museum

Maritimeuse The Maritime Museum on opening day in 1939: This steamship looking building was originally a casino.  MaritimeinsideThe inside of the Maritime Museum, a Works Progress Administration project, under construction:  Maritimetelephoneuse My crazy mother on the left and her cousin Frances swimming in the Bay behind Maritime Museum on a trip to SF from North Dakota when she was seventeen. That water is always cold! On the right are the two antique wall phone booths with the phone stands still inside. They may have called my mom’s aunt to come get them when they were through swimming at one of these booths seeing as how iPhones were only about seventy years in the future!
