"In addition, it is built on one of the highest peaks in the city..."[edit]

I'm not sure how to word an improvement, but the tower's base is on the slope of Mt. Sutro, not on its peak. 66.218.54.163 (talk) 06:43, 30 November 2007 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

Say, does anyone object to putting up this picture? (http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Image:Sutro_Tower.jpg) If not, go ahead and do it. I'm not bold enough. -Keith (Hypergeek14)Talk 17:20, 7 September 2008 (UTC)


References in Popular Culture[edit]

At one time this article mentioned references in popular culture to the Sutro Tower and its significance, specifically its appearance in Fritz Leiber's World Fantasy Award Winning short story "Our Lady of Darkness". I can't find any archive information about why this section was removed. I found this information enriched the article and was appropriate for such a cultural/geographic landmark.

Area to the northeast?[edit]

In Google Maps, you can see an large paved, fenced off octagonal area, about 75 m ⋅ 160 m, immediately to the northeast. It looks a bit like a rain water retention basin, but there are sheds and what appears to be solar collectors there. What is the purpose of this area? --Tim Landscheidt (talk) 18:35, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
