By Laurie Thompson · January 10, 2012

Among the many interesting pieces of ephemera in the California Room's collection is a 1901 musical score by Robert Uhlig titled "Hotel Rafael March".

California Room Digital Archivist Carol Acquaviva has brought Uhlig's score and a brief history of the Hotel Rafael to life in a new YouTube video.

This is the first time many people have seen pictures of the famous place! The March is very 'catchy'! The site is just a few blocks from Aldersly where a friend of mine lives. She told me a girlfriend of hers was lunching with her grandmother at The Hotel Rafael the day it burned--caused by a fire in the kitchen.

I love seeing the history of Marin. Thank you! Can't wait to see more. I was born here in 1962 and wouldn't move anywhere else.
