Wanted Dead or Alive!

SOHO is posting a reward of $250 for anyone who can prove beyond a shadow of a doubt who the architect was on the Tecate Depot and the year of construction. This offer extends to both sides of the border and the deadline is January 1, 2003.

Two architects are currently suspects; Eugene Hoffman who has a vast body of work involving John D. Spreckels, the Hotel Del Coronado, etc.; and John Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright who also commanded a great body of work predominately residential. Historians on both sides of the border are stymied on this one.

Because of the shared border heritage work SOHO has been involved in for the last decade we will stop at nothing to find all salient historical facts. We feel it is part of the mission of SOHO to gather as much factual data as possible when advocating for historical resources.
