An aerial-view drawing of a proposed plan for Aquatic Park, circa 1927. SAFR A11.19, 197n

“We’ll always have Paris." A phrase made famous by Humphrey Bogart, playing the owner Rick of Rick’s Café Américain, in the 1942 film Casablanca. Bogart uses this phrase to refer to a brief romance cut short by the Nazi invasion of France during World War II. Here in San Francisco, the Aquatic Park had its own Parisian romance, an artistic and architectural affair that gave the park its own streamline moderne White House (Casablanca) — the Aquatic Park Bathhouse (1936-1939). The story of how this building came about is more than an exposition of architectural style; the art and architecture are really the capstone event of a process that pitted the working-class politics of early 20th century San Francisco against the most powerful giants of West Coast industry and commerce. Come see how this story resulted in the Aquatic Park Bathhouse as it stands restored today!
