It is always a great thrill to find a deco-era S H Kress & Co store especially in good condition.
This store is in Berkeley, CA and is in wonderful condition. Although the colours on the terra cotta decoration may be fading the majority of the decoration is still intact.
This store was designed by Edward Frederick Sibbert, Jr and opened on 23rd January 1934.
