Blue Anchor Building

When we parked to go to the California Museum of History, Women & the Arts, I got out of the car and was looking at the entry way and plaque for this building. You can see Sharon's car parked to the left of the door.

This Mission/Spanish Revival building was designed by firm of Starks and Flanders, Architects and Engineers. The catalog of works by Starks and Flanders is formidable, including the Fox Senator (1924), the Elks Temple (1925), the Alhambra (1927), the U.S. Post Office and Courthouse (1932), the Marysville City Hall (1939), and countless small commercial projects and residences. The work of Starks and Flanders helped fashion much of the architectural character of greater Sacramento and numerous Sacramento Valley communities.
