From the National Register of Historic Places:

''The Camera Obscura is located on a lower terrace behind the Cliff House. The Camera Obscura consists of the components of the camera obscura projection table, lens, and mirror housed in a small building. The lens of the camera obscura, driven by a small motor, rotates for 360 degrees in a clockwise direction. The rotation takes approximately six minutes and provides panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, Seal Rocks, Fisherman's Rock, Ocean Beach, Point Lobos, and Marin coastline. Camera Obscura was built in 1946, and the exterior was remodeled in 1957.''   Read more »
