Sutro Baths bathing suits. Italian porcelain muses. A carved wooden grizzly bear. A cowboy sculpture from Playland-at-the-Beach. An oil painting of San Francisco’s wealthy 24th mayor, Adolph Sutro.
These eclectic items, and more — roughly 60 items in total — were saved from the closure of San Francisco’s historic Cliff House restaurant for the posterity of the public this weekend.
