San Francisco, California Camera Obscura - Giant Camera - June 7, 2008

    Newer Older

    The Giant Camera behind Cliff House in San Francisco overlooks Seal Rock on Point Lobos. The small building is decorated to look like a giant 35mm camera with its lens pointing to the sky. It was built in 1948-49 as part of the Playland at the Beach amusement area. The designer was Floyd Jennings who also designed two other camera obscuras, now lost, at The Garden of the Gods and Lookout Mountain.
