Description

These designs were installed in 1937 and commissioned by father/son architects John “Jack” S. Malloch and John Rolph Malloch. Each containing a figure, the three silver panels were created in raised plaster using a technique called sgraffito. The female figure on the building’s northern face represents the spirit of California and stands in front of a map of the state.

Fun Fact! The Malloch Building was used as a location in the 1947 noir film “Dark Passage,” with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall."

Location

1360 Montgomery Street, the three vertical panels are installed along the sides of the building’s face.
