Description
This photo is from an album depicting a group of friends en route to Camp Taylor in Marin County in 1889. Here they are nearing the trestle on White's Hill outside of Fairfax. When the narrow-gauge North Pacific Coast Railroad was completed in 1875, it ran right through Camp Taylor (site of Samuel P. Taylor's paper mill), making it a popular destination for campers and 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.
