Just Before It Was Destroyed by Fire, 50 Amazing Photos Captured the Cliff House in the Early 1900s

The famous Cliff House of San Francisco was built in 1863 by Senator John Buckley and C. C. Butler. Later it was turned into a restaurant with a breathtaking view.

The Cliff House had survived the 1906 earthquake with little damage but burned to the ground on the evening of September 7, 1907.

Just before it was destroyed by fire in 1907, these amazing photos captured the Cliff House in the early 1900s.
