Sunday, July 20, 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm
TILES AND TERRA COTTA IN UPTOWN OAKLAND (CA)
Meet at Southeast corner of 17th & Webster Streets (at the Howden Building)   Meet 15 minutes prior to the tour. We will explore twenty buildings—exhibiting a variety of styles—whose facades are clad with architectural ceramics. All were built between 1908 and 1931 during a period when fired pottery materials were used on the exteriors of many important structures. The nature of this medium will be examined, and its unique beauty highlighted. Emphasis will be given to its special needs in terms of maintenance, preservation, and restoration. Afterwards, from 3:00–3:30, take an optional tour of the inside of the Howden Building and view historic photos of the buildings seen on the walking tour. A level walk.—Riley Doty
