All year, I’ve been on the lookout for homes or buildings constructed in 1919 that are still with us today. It’s a real challenge with the passage of time and the 1925 earthquake. But this month, I got lucky – although it’s not a totally new building, just an attractive facelift that was completed in December 1919. Next time you’re downtown, look for this building at 913 State Street.
