Contrasts in Architecture

The cute building is the Hobart Bldg. The not-so-cute one is 44 Montgomery St.


Hobart: completed 1914, architect Willis Polk
44 Montgomery: completed 1966, architect John Graham

Lots of details to look at if you focus on the older building.

This is fabulous. I love it when two styles are right next to each other like this, competing for your attention.

And hey, Virg is right. Cute? :-)
