Ezra and Christina donated doors salvaged from houses torn down in their neighborhood! Thank you, thank you! We have a cool project with them! Ezra and Christina have spent years restoring their Painted Lady. If you read the cool history plaque, you will be able to discern its connection to the Oaklands: shortly after the #Oaklands was built in 1889, the streetcar system consolidated and blossomed under Lowry. This was the death knell to the Oaklands as luxury apartments. Families were able to move out of the downtowns, and they did. In short order, the Oaklands became the Delta Hotel. Now these #PaintedLadies are vulnerable to development, so kudos to Ezra and Christina and their ongoing #preservation and #restoration work.
