638 S. Cloverdale To-day
Check out those rounded corner windows. I’m guessing 1938-40 on this one. I know I should go down and pull records, but while ars longa, you know, vita brevis.
Slight eaves with dentils--and those full-height pilasters--give this a Classical touch, but the sort of faux corner tower and arched dormer makes me itch with French Eclectic. Bet Solly boy died on hardwood floors near a nicely tiled bathroom. Now I'm itching to get in a take a look-see.
Poor Sol. As is often said, any friend who would shoot you in the crotch is no friend at all.
