This photo is from an album documenting an excursion by a group of friends to Camp Taylor in Marin County, 1889. Depicted here is the dam created to power Samuel P. Taylor's first paper mill, established in 1856. When the narrow-gauge North Pacific Coast Railroad was completed in 1875 it ran through Camp Taylor (site of Samuel P. Taylor's paper mill) making it a popular destination for excursionists. By 1877 parties were coming from San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area to enjoy the great outdoors. It was one of the first places in the U.S. to offer camping as a recreational activity.
