From the estate of Roger Owen Boyer, one of the two architects that designed the 456 Montgomery Street building. Roger Owen Boyer was a San Francisco, Tiburon and Carmel based architect.
GOOD condition: The front cover is worn, rubbed, faded, and has a few stains (coffee drops?), but is still holding up; a few of the first and last blueprints have toned to yellow; there is some edge chipping and wear here and there, overall the blueprints are solid, bright, clean and clear. This set of bound blueprints has a fold in the middle where it was folded over to be able to be carried. It has been stored in the folded over state and will be mailed that way.
The design and construction of the 456 Montgomery Street building was controversial because It was constructed over two historic buildings, the Italian American Bank (Albert Pissis), a city landmark built in 1907, and Sutro and Co. (Howard & Galloway) built in 1908. Facadism at its best, or worst.
Actual set of blueprints for one of the 1980s skyscrapers that generated controversy and helped reshape San Francisco's skyline.International buyers please check Shipping Details for costs to your country.
