Shandon Florist, 30919 Millwood Avenue: 2009 (moved)   2 comments

Posted at 12:20 am in stores

I had noticed several times that this very interesting building on Millwood was vacant, but somehow never got around to taking any pictures until recently. This is the former location for Shandon Florist, an 80 year old area stalwart which has since moved to 2733 Millwood Avenue.

This real estate listing (which also has an aerial photo) says the building was built in 1962, and in a few of these shots it appears to me that there might be some roof issues which might have factored into the move. Still, I quite like the building. It seems to draw on the same period inspirations that went into the old Eggroll Station and Silver City buildings.

UPDATE 17 January 2014 -- This place is now Birdhouse Rooms & Garden:

  1. It looks like a house that would look pretty cool on a California ocean front mountain cliff.
