Beyond The Cove

continuing along the one-way conzelman road, after having left hawk hill in the marin headlands, i stopped at battery rathbone mcindoe to look at the old powder and shell room structures and to take in the wonderful views the site has to offer.

here, you have part of bonita cove in the foreground with the south tower of the golden gate bridge and san francisco beyond…

incidentally, construction of the battery started in 1904 and completed in 1905 – it was initially named after lt. samuel b. rathbone, a u.s. artillerist, who died of wounds received in action at queenstown heights, upper canada, in 1812. in 1922, the east half of the battery was renamed for brig. gen james f. mcindoe, an engineer officer who was serving in france and died there in 1919. the battery was deactivated in 1948.
