San Francisco Optics, Marina

San Francisco Optics, MarinaAnother of the Art Deco shops in Chestnut St, Marina is San Francisco Optics.

This corner shop has square columns at street level with green and rust (dare I saw International Organge) coloured tiles however the main decoration is above the level of the shop windows.

Here there a series of three horizontal lines with the top one presenting as a continuous band interrupted at regualr intervals by detailed Art Deco panels. The lower two lines break at the corner of the building and for groupings of green wave motifs under each of the orange deco panels.
