Tiki Modern

Architect: Unknown

Location: San Diego, CA

 

Part of the wonderfully preserved time capsule that is the "Tiki Colony" on San Diego's Shelter Island. There are at least a couple dozen modernist buildings from the 1950s here, on the bay overlooking San Diego. This is a boat rental agency, I believe.

 

Just off camera, on the left, are the assorted things that were cluttering up the front of this building and that I had to move out of the way for this shot, including the trash bin, a sign, and three newspaper/magazine kiosks. :-)
