Sutro's Glass Palace: The Story of Sutro Baths


"Sutro's Glass Palace - The Story of Sutro Baths"
by John A. Martini (website)
Available from Amazon (link)

For more information on the Sutro Baths I highly recommend John Martini's definitive reference, "Sutro's Glass Palace: The Story of Sutro Baths".  His meticulous attention to detail is unmatched and the 3D illustrations are superb.  I've known John for many years and neither this page, nor the entire website for that matter, would be half of what it is without his patient help.
