Spite Fence!

This picture (below) is one of the panels of Eadweard Muybridge's Panoramic of San Fransisco, April 1878. you can see the whole thing here or go down the Tate Britain and catch it in the flesh, it's totally wonderful.

Anyway, the below image captures the Spite Fence that was build by Charles Crocker around his neighbour's house the reason for this was his neighbour refused to sell up so Crocker could build his mansion, google 'Spite Fence' and there's more information. You may not spot it right off but it's in the second block up at the back of the big white house.
