Lost San Diego - Bankers Hill Residences

This circa 1910 colored postcard shows three homes in a row in Bankers Hill designed by architects William S. Hebbard and Irving J. Gill. (From the left) Judge Monroe B. Anderson Residence, 2257 Front Street, 1904, City historic site #198; Edward Grove Residence, "The Christmas Cottage," 2243 Front Street, 1905, City historic site #336; Mary C. Johnson Residence, 2233 Front Street, 1905, demolished without public review or notice in July, 2006.

This recently intact streetscape has been vandalized by the addition of an out of scale, out of character stucco structure where the Irving Gill home stood only two years ago! Had this been part of a historic district, as it should have been, this could not have occurred.
