A Photo Tour Atop San Francisco’s Sutro Tower

San Francisco from the tower

My friend Jim Herd points me toward this set of photos taken during an (authorized) ascent up San Francisco’s Sutro Tower during 2005. I’ve always wanted to tour Sutro Tower, and I fantasize that someday, when over-the-air broadcast television technology becomes obsolete, Sutro Tower will become a tourist destination, complete with a public observation deck and restaurant high above the clouds. Maybe someday. But in the meantime, these photos will have to suffice!
