Paramount Theater, Oakland, California
Great picture of this grand theater’s grand interior. From this article, which presents a background on Bay Area Deco and architect Timothy Pflueger.
Like Chicago after the great fire of 1871, San Francisco was rebuilt from the ground up in the months and years following the devastating earthquake of 1906. As the residents dug out of the ashes and rubble that leveled most of the downtown area, architects flocked to the city to help with the rebuilding effort and to make a name for themselves.
