Speaker: Daniella Thompson
Berkeley is a treasure trove of buildings that look as if theyd stepped out of a Mother Goose fairy tale. In the course of this illustrated talk, well pay a visit to and marvel at the fanciful work of specialists in the whimsical genre that manifested itself during the 1920s.
Architects and builders who left their mark on Berkeleys Hansel & Gretel architecture include William Raymond Yelland, Jack Thornburg, Francis Harvey Slocombe, Carr Jones, Sidney & Noble Newsom, and the Fox Brothers.
Editor of the BAHA website and author of the article series East Bay: Then and Now, Daniella Thompson will showcase both well-known and obscure examples of Storybook Style in Berkeley.
