The Sutro Baths, opened in 1896, were an enormous covered swimming pool complex in western San Francisco. It had seven pools filled with water from the ocean with six of them kept at temperatures ranging from hot to cold. Over the course of its operation until it closed in 1966 it also featured a concert hall, ice skating rink and a huge collection of owner Adolph Sutro's stuffed animals and other oddities. The structure burned down in 1966 leaving behind the ruins which are now part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

The photo on the cover of the Frank Black and the Catholics album Dog in the Sand was shot here. It's a perfectly boring album cover, but I was just glad it didn't make my eyes bleed like all of the other Frank Black and the Catholics album artwork.
