Of course, in San Francisco, celebrating Chinese New Year is a big event!
It's the Year of the Dragon!
A year filled with CHANGE....with PROSPERITY! Oh boy!
I had to photograph this amazing (and original) floor.....isn't it GORGEOUS!
A refelection from the stained glass onto an enormous leaf!
Come along with me to this world of beautiful plants from all round the world!
There was a special exhibit..... intitled *Playland*. This was a place perched right atop the cliffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean...it featured *Carnival-type* rides...a Roller Coaster, Ferris Wheel, Diving Bell etc. (Sort of Coney Island -like.) The Sutro Baths had a HUGE swimming pool, ice rink.... sadly, I missed all of this....just a tad too young! A-ha-ha! But today, I felt like I was there!
Original poster....that's 1899 my friends!
The original sign over the entrance....darn....I thought I captured it all....but...alas, I didn't!
A real Bumper Car.... my first time in one!
