Sutro

  • $12.95


This is a model of San Francisco's Sutro Tower. 

The Sutro Tower is not only a prominent part of the San Francisco skyline and a fascinating landmark for visitors, but also provides broadcast television for residents. Before its construction in 1973 the television reception in the city was very spotty due to the many hills blocking the signal. The great height of the Sutro Tower – 977 ft – solved this problem. The tower is situated on a hill between Twin Peaks and Mount Sutro, which is where it gets its name.

This model is printed on 140# uncoated paper using spot colors on an offset printer, and precision die cut.
