Oblique Front Elevation
Belvedere Land Company in Belvedere, California

Albert Farr designed this Shingle Style commercial building, fronting Belvedere's Town Square, in 1905.  The gabled forms and window arrangements hint at the work of Richard Norman Shaw in Bedford Park, a prototypical Garden City built in the 1880s on the outskirts of London, England.  The gable groupings also suggest some of the late 19th and early 20th century country estates of another great English architect, Sir Edwin Lutyens, although Farr's composition is more informal.  The Belvedere Land Company was the principle landholder and developer of the charming waterfront community.  Photo taken in 2001 by Howard J.
