    There are a bevy of print advertisements at the Society of California Pioneers. These are by no means all of them, but just some that I picked out to share. One is a a transit ad for Sutro Baths, though I don't know if it is for a trolley or a cable car. The other two are for the Emerson Minstrels. The second of those two is for the 50th Anniversary show in 1881 and was printed by a San Francisco printer, Francis Valentine & Co.

    For more information on Charley Reed and the rest of the San Francisco's theatrical scene, check out this website: http://www.sfmuseum.org/hist/theatres.html

      The old Sutro's at the Cliff House..was there many times before it burned down..had a mirror outfit like a big periscope that you could see the skaters on the lower level from the top floor.

      I just acquired a poster of the Sutro Bathes inside with swimmers and slides and rings and it was a huge place for it's time I guess, I'm surprised how many people do not remember it that were young in that era. The ones that do seem to have fond memories of it. I would have liked to have been lucky enough to grace it. Tragedy it burnt down... Or they say?
