Editorial ReviewBook Tells Story Of East Bay Theater Architect, Oakland Tribune: ""Art Deco San Francisco: The Architecture of Timothy Pflueger," published by Princeton Architectural Press, a new acquisition at the Oakland Main Library History Room, delves into the unique, colourful and ultimately brief career of Pflueger and contains many full-colour illustrations of his works, including the Paramount and Alameda theaters.The new biography was written by Therese Poletti. a local journalist who also leads walking tours for San Francisco City Guides.The author worked with Tom Pflueger, the late architect's nephew, who allowed her access to family and business firm archives and provided her with insights into the life and times of the son of humble German-born immigrants who arrived in San Francisco in the 1890s. The book paints a portrait of a young man who came of age in the aftermath of the devastating 1906 earthquake and fire that leveled much of San Francisco, and went on to design some of the most beautiful buildings erected in California during the 1920s and '30s." -- Annalee Allen
