Strolling at the Lake

 This photograph, circa 1910, shows a woman sporting a parasol while walking around Stow Lake in Golden Gate Park. Due to her dress, the woman may be
a health care worker at Affiliated Colleges, which is located on Mount Sutro in the background. The colleges would be renamed the University of California,
San Francisco, after the Affiliated Colleges were made a part of the California university system. Photo courtesy of a private collector/Western Neighborhoods Project
