The Bank of Commerce & Trust building was built in 1910 of neo-classic design. The front is framed from ground to ceiling, pilasters capped by Corinthian capitals with inset masks, and topped with floral medallions. Just lovely! Harrison Albright was the architect for this lovely building as well as the Hotel Del Coronado. This Beaux Arts structure stands out all along Orange Avenue for 372 feet, but bends another 211 feet on Loma Ave. It was lovingly restored in 2001. I absolutely love the frieze garnished with fleurs-de-lis, lion heads. Yet, the building does not stop there of course. Mr. Speckles around 1916 had Albright design the rest of this massive structure to include a bank, Silver Strand Theatre (opened in 1917), stores, apartments, and office suites. The building also boast many wonderful amenities for its time period a built in vacuum outlets on each floor, and automatic sprinkler system with a capacity 16,000 gallons. A really beautiful structure.

There are two times you can walk or cycle across the Coronado bridge. Once in May and once in October (usually those two months) when they have charity events. You can get more information at www.coronadochamber.com or www.coronadovisitorcenter.com as the event draws closer.
Look at this pretty Marina Building with American flag on the top.
From LINDA (lmkluque):
The "Marina" building is actually the, "Boat House," once part of the Hotel Del Coronado. It is now used as restaurant. Years and years ago, the Scripps Institute lived there.
Thank you Linda!
