Historical Photo – Richmond District

This pastoral scene in the Outer Richmond in 1899 is from the Goecker Family Album, courtesy of the O’Keefe family. Located near the intersection of 47th Avenue and Cabrillo Street, the windmill was on a large tract of land owned by former SF Mayor Adolph Sutro. It pumped water to Sutro Heights.
