This photo, circa 1900, shows Alvord Lake in Golden Gate Park shortly after it was created for the California Midwinter International Exposition of 1894. The tunnel in the background connects the lake and the eastern end of the park with the Children’s Playground, Sharon Art Studio and Hippie Hill. Photo courtesy of a private collector/Western Neighborhoods Project
