SAFR-00614 was received as a field collection from the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park's Photo Lab on December 18, 1992.
The San Francisco Maritime State Historic Park was established in 1956 and existed under this name until 1977 when it became the National Maritime Museum, part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. In 1988 the Maritime Unit became a separate national park called the San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park, the name it is still known by today.
The San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park (SFMNHP) provides services for millions of visitors annually and acts as a custodian for historic vessels, small watercraft, museum artifacts, archives and a maritime library. The SFMNHP is responsible for maintaining 35 acres of urban parkland which include the Aquatic Park Bathhouse (a National Historic Landmark which serves as a museum exhibit facility), the Hyde Street Pier (where the historic vessels are moored), and the Haslett Warehouse. Five of the historic vessels moored on Hyde Street Pier are designated National Historic Landmarks: ALMA, BALCLUTHA, C.A. THAYER, EUREKA and HERCULES. The park also operates a library and archives in a Historic Landmark building at nearby Fort Mason which houses a variety of documents, vessel plans, photographs, motion picture film, books, periodicals and oral histories.
The Maritime Museum is located in the Aquatic Park Bathhouse on Beach Street. The Bathhouse building was built in 1939 as a joint project of the City of San Francisco and the New Deal Works Progress Administration (WPA), and is the focal point of the Aquatic Park Historic Landmark District. The Maritime Museum now contains interpretive material about Pacific Coast maritime history, including ship models, permanent exhibits, and traveling exhibits.
