Majestic El Capitan (left) contains enough granite to make three Gibraltars. Clouds Rest peak and Half Dome fill the distant skyline. These visitors motored to the overlook through Wawona Tunnel, cut behind Pulpit Rock.
"The cataract wears a triple crown of peaks known as Cathedral Rocks. Its sparkling waters feed the Merced River. Erosive glacial ice, filling a mountain ravine to its brim, shaped the valley and polished its granite monoliths."

I'd never heard of this before. The Boston Molasses Disaster, 1919.
Does anyone have photos of the car collection at the Sutro Baths which was right next door to the Cliff House?
Tucker #1041 was on display there from the mid 50s until it closed in 1966. Seems like there should be some photos of it floating around.
The only two entries obviously - LOL
And a Vauxhall Velox next to it.

Check out this monster that did 90 mph at the Brooklands track in England in 1909. The John Alfred Prestwich 80 degree engine, is stated to have a square bore and stroke and a massive 2714 cc volume of displacement, which works out to 165.62 c.i., and for a motorcycle is huge.
