Stable Property

Sutro Estate 1910, no. 30, Stable (GOGA 18443)

John Martini  (12/30/2020):  "There were two kinds of stables at Sutro Heights: a barn-type building where working animals were kept (like dray horses and mules) and a much nicer stable where the valuable, highly-bred horses were kept. At Sutro Heights the working barn was down in the parking lot area and the high-end stable was across from Sutro Heights on Anza St near 48th Avenue. The high-end stable house was extra large because it held horses on the first floor with a hay loft above, and (from the looks of it) housing for grooms and other Heights staff."
