Photographic Print. Aquatic Bathhouse Maritime Museum, Beach St, Russian Hill neighbourhood, San Francisco.
This curved white Art Deco building is set into a little area of trees on a curving cove of beach and promenade, backlit by the Ghirardelli sign at night. It was constructed between 1936 and 1939 and is an outstanding example of Streamlined Moderne Style, a style popular in the 1930s and characterised by sleek surfaces, clean lines and aerodynamic forms designed to mimic ships, cars and aeroplanes. The Bathhouse which houses the Maritime Museum at 900 Beach Street is part of the city's Maritime National Historical Park and is situated like a ship moored on the curving beach. It is also called the Sala Burton building as Sala Burton was a local Congresswoman who championed workers rights in the 1980s. It is a centre for Human Rights, education, training and houses the Senior Center. The interior is still decorated with a marble floor like a sea chart, fantastic mosaics and murals of fish and strange sea creatures.
