THE ARTIST AND HIS LEGACY

 Photographing the restored Mission District residence/studio
 of  

 DAVID IRELAND (1930-2009)

The sensitive and persistent restoration/preservation of Mr. Ireland's 1886 corner Victorian building has turned into one of the most important artistic resources of San Francisco contemporary art. It's open to the public for tours and exhibitions. http://500cappstreet.org/visit/

The much anticipated opening garnered widespread coverage in the media, printed as well as on-line, thanks to Wendy Norris https://www.linkedin.com/in/norrcomm, Yosh Asato http://yoshasato.com/ and of course Carli Wilmans and her team at the 500 Capp Street Foundation.

THE ART DECO PACIFIC BELL TOWER - A SAN FRANCISCO LANDMARK

The 26-floor building was originally called the Pacific Telephone Building when it was completed in 1925, and it was San Francisco's first significant skyscraper development when construction began in 1924. The architect was Timothy L. Pflueger, partner in the firm Miller & Pflueger, at the time a rising star of San Francisco's architect community. For 44 years until 1978, the top of the roof was used to convey official storm warnings to sailors at the direction of the US Weather Bureau, in the form of a 25 foot long triangular red flag by day, and a red light at night.
After years of standing vacant the edifice was restored and reborn as office space with Yelp as the main tenant. It has been renamed 140NM and is known by the philistines among as "the Yelp building".
I photographed it for the owners Wilson Meany Sullivan.
