I thought this was a very interesting building when I took these pictures earlier this year in San Francisco. The building is a mish-mash of styles. The roofline doesn't match the Art Deco panels below the windows. So I was pleased to see in the brief notes I had made from Deco by the Bay by Michael F Crowe that the building dates from 1902 and was remodelled in 1930.
MELBOURNE ART DECO
In 2009 Robin Grow published a book on Melbourne Art Deco, with images largely supplied by David Thompson. The book quickly sold out and he is pleased to say that it has now been re-published by Brolga Press, with updates, errors corrected and a new cover.
Best of all, it is selling for about $25 in the shops and on-line. Art Deco & Modernism Society members can purchase a copy from me for $22, (includes postage within Australia). For overseas orders please email for postage rates. Contact me at email@example.com if you are interested, and advise if you would like the book to be dedicated and/or signed.
