Back to School

May 12, 2009

A view of the old San Francisco Public School Administration building.

I believe the date over the front door says 1924. The building’s been shrouded in tarps and scaffolding for a while, as well as showing a lot of sooty fire damage over the windows.

I thought I’d get out and sketch it while we were in town – you never know when restoration leads to re-purposing. It might become a Starbucks or Gap for all I know. We haven’t lived in the SF area that long – but I’m already developing that locals attitude – wanting to preserve everything before its gone.

    ooohhhh! So glad to know you are out there! I love your work -no kidding! We must be friends. I’m out San Francisco way this summer to visit relatives. We should meet at a coffee house, talk and draw, huh?
