1896-1907 San Francisco Cliff House

This is the one image that has some elements that I did not photograph. This building burned down in 1907 after standing for only 11 years and after surviving the big earthquake the year before. Of course there was no color photography then - the building comes from a photo by an unknown photographer. I hand colored the roof to match old colored post cards. The woman and her young daughter came from the same photo but were not in the water. The rest of the image I did in 2010 from Ocean Beach as well as later creating the reflection of the Cliff House.
