Aquatic Park Bathhouse murals

This view of the lobby of the Aquatic Park Bathhouse (also known as the Maritime Museum building) in San Francisco was taken by my talented coworker, Tim Campbell (and is posted here with his kind permission). The work on the conservation of Hilaire Hiler's murals progresses, and is a delight to behold--the colors on the cleaned portions of the murals are breathtaking.

More information on the larger Aquatic Park rehabilitation project is available at the San Francisco Maritime NHP's website, and more information on the building is at the Library of Congress' Built in America site, which presents the Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering Record/Historic American Landscapes Survey, (1933-Present)--just search for: Aquatic Park Bathhouse

I had occasion to visit on July 31, this is a picture of the ceiling (with light fixture) in the Prismatarium: Please feel free to reproduce it if you wish. Your blog posts, and Tim Campbell's picture, are excellent.

Glad to read you had a good vacation, La Jolla is lovely indeed!
All the best,
Juli Carter
