Medico-Dental Building Eighth at Francisco Los Angeles
Los Angeles: The authors, 1923. Item #013167
The Medical Edition of the building’s rental prospectus, showing sixteen plans and variations for medical offices in mock blueprint format, including plans for an eye specialist, an otolaryngologist, one-man and two-man office arrangements, etc. Designed by the Los Angeles firm of Walker & Eisen. Far from being the firm’s most glamorous project, here they have given the developers a dedicated medical-dental professional building with retail space on the ground floor, and twelve stories of office space, in a very conventional and conservative design. Completed in 1924; demolished. 17.5 cm; 22 pp.; illustrated from wood-engraved perspective drawing of building to front cover; map; and seventeen tipped-in plans. Staple holes to rear cover; else a very good copy in pictorial wrappers.
