Some Art Deco buildings where the architect cut corners. Literally.
Two views of Shanghai’s spectacular Peace Hotel. From 1997, the original lobby check-in area (you can just make out a luggage cart at lower right) and from 2015 where the original lobby is now a lounge. Looks like the clock did not survive …

Some Art Deco Separated at Birth installments require close inspection. Not this one.
In 1986, I took a shot of the Four Star Theater on Wilshire Boulevard in L.A. And then, something strange happened….

I realized I had seen this Art Deco house before, in an ad for Insulux glass block.
Here we have two fine examples of Streamline Moderne, each sporting not one, but two cylinders.
