Photograph of a view of the beach in front of San Francisco's Cliff House, ca.1900. The beach is in the foreground and is covered with dark sand. Many beachgoers are visible lounging on the sand or walking near the water. The massive Cliff House restaurant is on a rocky cliff in the background at center. It is six stories high and has a massive rectangular tower at center, in addition to dozens of windows around its perimeter. The large Seal Rocks are visible in the ocean at left. A path leads up the cliff from the beach at right.
