A view of the exterior of the Victorian home of the former Governor, George C. Pardee. The house is three-storey with semicircular window and door arches and with steps leading up to the main floor. A picket fence is in front of the hosue. 1974 is the date that the photo was copied by Keith Dennison; an earlier date, 1970, on one of the four Tribune clippings on the back of the photo precedes the 1974 date. The earliest caption, dated February 19, 1970, reads "PARDEE MANSION ACHIEVES HISTORIC STATUS Classic Old timer housed on Oakland Mayor and his son [sic]." [The photographer was Bill Knowland, Jr.]. The next earliest caption, dated December 28, 1974, reads "ONETIME HOME OF FORMER gOV. GEORGE C. PARDEE AT 672 11 TH ST. The classic style house still has its fence, gardens, stables, and tank house." The caption dated August 8, 1976 reads "HOME OF FORMER GOV. GEORGE C. PARDEE AT 672 11TH ST. Already included in the National Register of Historic Places." The last caption is dated March 30, 1980; it reads "The Pardee mansion, 672 11th St. (at Castro) once owned by George Pardee, the City's mayor in 1893 and the state's 1902-07 governor, is among the Victorian homes featured on a suggested walking tour in 'East Bay Heritage, A Potpourri of Living History'"
