What the Camera Obscura image looks like

There's a giant camera obscura at the cliff house, near ocean beach. It was made in 1946 and still works great! There's a prism/lens on the roof that rotates and projects an image down into a darkened room (onto a curved surface) so that you can see the outside projected inside. It's really neat.
