I was walking down one of the charming streets of San Francisco last week, I came across an extraordinary building. It was so astonishing, I took this picture.
As you can see in the above image on the left, it’s obviously a building of Victorian vintage, but with a rather unexpected set of roof-top ornaments! I was struck by how curious and out-of-place it seemed with its domes and crennelation.
So I took the picture, got online and looked it up. Ah ha! Once I realized what it was, I remembered another picture I had in my files—an archival photo of another famous location here in the Valley with a rather different kind of dome.
Today’s question is another simple one. (It is the beginning of the year after all—next week we’ll get a little more difficult.)
What is the connection between these two buildings?
(And it’s NOT that they both have domes. There’s a much more interesting fact that links these buildings.)For extra credit, can you find the lat/long of the Ashram?
As usual, let us know how long it took you to find out what the connection is, and what path you followed to find it!
