Oldest Photo of the Conservatory

Look to upper portion of the photograph in the distance–about 1/4 of quarter down from the top edge–and see the oldest known image of octagonal Sunnyside Conservatory (with its original two wings). Just to the left of the Conservatory (in this detail) is Merrall’s original home (now 258 Monterey Boulevard). Our thanks to Greg Gaar for sharing this photograph with us.
