Location: 1747 W. Commonwealth Avenue 1939: Streamline Moderne
This building is the best example in the application of the Streamline Moderne style to a commercial structure in Fullerton. The building’s low-set profile featuring curvilinear forms, rounded corners and the use of glass block is characteristic of the style.
The use of this architectural format suggests an interest on the part of the Val Vita – Hunt Wesson Company to project an up-to-date image. No major exterior alterations have been made over its 60-year existence.
