Envelope reads, "Oakland Boathouse." Negative shows the exterior of a boathouse (probably Lake Merritt) with boats, etc. in front of it. Betsy Willcuts, June 2002 Bibliography: THE HEART OF OAKLAND, A Walking Guide to Lake Merritt by Leslie Flint, Sponsored by the Camron-Stanford House Preservation Association The Sailboat House built in 1914 and remodeled in 1957 began as a canoe house. Originally it was a Mediterranean style building; one can still see a few of these elements today. Betsy Willcuts, June 2002 Several types of boats can be rented by the hour at a newer boat house to the north; sailing instruction is also available.
