Natural History Museum_1
“The NAT.” Not  part of the 1915 history of Balboa Park, but rather it was in advance of the 1935 Expo. Still a worthy and significant San Diego Landmark.

Jessop Sun Dial_21

The 1906  Joseph Jessop sundial. It stands before the main entrance of the Natural History Museum. Although the tip of the gnomon is broken and the face is marred by the addition of security bolts to prevent theft, it remains a beautiful sundial.
