Treasure Island Terminal and Administration Building

posted in: PWA, WPA | 0

 

Originally built as the terminal for Pan Am China Clipper seaplanes, the building also served as a welcome center for the 1939 Golden Gate International Exposition. The island itself, the terminal, and two hangars were WPA, PWA and San Francisco City projects. During World War II until 1997, the island was a US Navy base.

Hyde Park Post Office

Built of fieldstone in the Dutch Colonel Revival style, the building was completed in 1941. Franklin Roosevelt influenced this design of his home town post office as well as several others in Duchess County, New York.

 

The lobby contains several paintings by Olin Dows depicting the local history of the area.
