This is the entrance to the Mission Apartments in the historic Alexander Building. The structure was built in 1910 and stretches across a block of downtown Mission Street. It has street level shops, with apartments on the second floor. In my usual habit of associating places with scenes from movies, I have always thought this classic early 20th century building looked like it could have been one of the places where Johnny Hooker and Henry Gondorff might have rigged a card game in The Sting.
So, I felt compelled to post this photo today as the world mourns the loss of another 20th Century classic. So long, Paul Newman. You will be missed.
