I have to hand it to him. James really knows how to make my life more fun and interesting — especially since my main game is cruising around San Francisco viewing (and selling) fine examples of residential architecture.
Many of San Francisco’s neighborhoods were built in the boom times of the 1920s and 1940s and identifying the style of the homes has often been difficult for me. With James’s rules of thumb regarding tell-tale characteristics and years built, I can now tell my deco from my Streamline Moderne and my Spanish Eclectic from Mediterranean Revival. It’s really worth a look.
