Charles Harris, "Mayor of Lands End"greenspun.com : LUSENET : San Francisco History : One Thread
I am preparing a walk for the National Park Service called "Legends of Lands End" starting at the old City Cemetery, and following the old railroad bed along the coast. I came across Mr. Harris name, and wonder what he was all about. Did he build one of the structures close to the Lands End Railroad Station? If you have any stories to add, please feel free to give me suggestions for other topics. So far, I cover the cemetary, China Beach, Deadmen's Point, Landslides, Railroad Wars, Battery at LE, the Oozlefinch, the Mayor of LE, the Hermit of LE, four shipwrecks, Sutro's urn, the ghost of Sutro Baths, Maritime Lookout, Harding/El Camino del Mar, two trees planted by the Marechals de France, et cetera.
