Malloch Apartments, San Francisco

Malloch Apartments, San Francisco
Telegraph Hill in San Francisco is home to this magnificent apartment block.

Malloch Apartments were designed by Irvine Goldstine and built in 1936-37. They are Streamline Moderne in style with views over the bay but the silver decorative figures by Alfred du Pont on the exterior walls set this building apart.

At one end there is a Spanish explorer peering through a telescope towards the other end of the building where a male figure holding a globe stands over the Bay Bridge

The apartments were used during the filming of the 1947 Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall movie Dark Passage.
