Two pages of folded typescript, with a brown stapled backing, with identifying text on the outside. SIGNED in ink by Adolph Sutro and Paul Thereux on page 2.

The total pay is designated at $220 per week. In 1896, Adolph Sutro (1830-1898) was the 24th mayor of San Francisco , having made a fortune dewatering the mines of the Comstock Lode in Virginia City, Nevada . The Cliff House which is referred to in this contract, had just been rebuilt and opened in 1896, following the destruction by fire of the prior Cliff House in 1894. This new Cliff House was a splendid Victorian gingerbread chateau which survived the 1906 earthquake and fire, but was doomed to destruction by fire in 1907. Sutro Baths opened in March of 1896; i. e., the year of this contract. This is a rare signed document joining significant events and places in the history of San Francisco.
