2124-2130 Chestnut St, Marina

Chestnut St, Marina2124-2130 Chestnut Street, Marina with its wonderful sunray facade.

According to Michael F Crowe in Deco by the Bay the shops were constructed in 1932 but the architect is unknown.

It is interesting that the shop closer to the camera has a semi-circular window above the main street level window while the other shop (Starbucks) has a series of three rectangular windows. I suspect the semi-circular window is original but without viewing an old photo or the original plans it is difficult to tell.
