The Byron Hot Springs used to be a resort where movie stars and superstar athletes visited in the early 1900′s. The SF Seals held training camp at the location and SF socialites would frequent the resort in the early century for the hot springs and golf. Early versions of the resort were destroyed in fires, but the last resort built (in 1913) was built as a four story structure out of bricks and the structure is largely intact still today.
The Ruins at Talisay City, Philippines. This mansion was built back in the early 1900's by a sugar baron. This was the largest residential structure ever built at that time. The mansion met its sad fate in World War II when the mansion was burned to prevent the Japanese forces from utilizing it as their headquarters. It took days of inferno to bring down the roof and the 2-inch wooden floors.
