1905 & 1914 Mesker Building Front Catalogs on CD



Another unique piece of architectural history, about 200 pages in total length, you receive both the 1905 and 1914 catalogs on one CD. A beautiful history of commercial storefront design and construction.

Also included is the 1921 Zouri Storefront Catalog. This early catalog represents the decline of those wonderful wooden detailed storefront designs in favor of steel, which was more economical to install and of course more durable than its earlier counterparts. Of course all the wonderful early design elements were lost in the transition.

PLUS....

A Google search brought up this from the February, 14th, 1912 New York Times archives:

Warrants were sent yesterday from the Marshal's office to Seattle for the arrest of Falcon Joslin. John Schram, Vr. H. Farsons, F. E; Barbour and E. L. Webster, formerly officers of the Washington Alaska Bank of Washington, which on Oct. 1, 1910, was merged with the Fairbanks Banking Company to form the Washington-Alaska Bank of Nevada. These prominent citizens of Seattle were indicted by the Grand Jury that adjourned recently. The Washington-Alaska Bank closed Jan. 4, 1911, owing $900,000 to depositors. Half has been repaid to them. Elbrtdge iT. /arnett, President of the bank, was arrested in Los Angeles under seven , charging embezzlement. In were returned against the bank Officers. Frank IV. Hawkins, Receiver of the bank, was arrested in FairbanKS several days ago, charged with embezzlement. (Note: Mispelled words are part of the original article).

The significance? When you receive your CD look at page one, of the 1914 catalog. The signed endorsement ~ On bank letterhead ~ includes most of the names in the New York Times article outlined above!!!
