Chula Vista / Moderne

I met my mom for a walk on Mother's Day. She wanted to go to downtown Chula Vista, where we both grew up. There is a surprising amount of good architecture left in the old commercial area. One of the sweetest is this 1939 Streamline Moderne doctor's office.  Apparently this was my doctor's office when I was a baby.

McCausland-Robinson Clinic. The office was started by Dr. William McCausland, his son John and Dr. Frank Robinson.

The Vogue opened in 1945.
Frank Hope Jr. was the architect
It closed in 2006 and it seems like every year there is a new plan to bring it back to life.
