    This Art Deco building, known today as the PacBell Building, was built in 1925, I believe by famous architect Timothy Pflueger. When it was built it was called the "Pacific Telephone Building." Pacific Telephone was a branch of the Bell System (AT&T). You can see the Bell System insignia above the the large door.

    Pacific Bell, which branched off of the Bell System sold the building in 2007, and it is now vacant.

      Great shots!

      This building also housed the excellent PacBel Telephone Pioneers telephone museum, which was open to the public, until a few years ago when it was whisked off to San Antonio by SBC (or wherever all the great historic stuff ended up). As far as I know it has not re-opened in Texas. Does anybody know the current whereabouts of the former contents of this museum?
