Usually I’m fairly thrilled when Art Deco folks use my pics to promote Art Deco (with credit & permission). Sadly though, today, one photo was used to bring a call to arms for the **Medic Building in Chicago **to be saved, which is slowly being torn down since it doesn’t seem to have any high-falutin’ landmark protections. Here’s the LINK to the story on the Chidago Art Deco Society’s facebook page.

Esslinger Building (1939): San Juan Capistrano, California. Easily Orange County’s finest Streamline Moderne building. Of course there isn’t much competition since there’s maybe another 3 or 4 left there.
