A Jewel Is Discovered

Suddenly Mr. Sullivan became very excited as ahead he saw a building of the perfect proportions and provenance.
Ah, the Sutter Club, California's second oldest private club.
Here stood a gentlemen's club worthy of true gentlemen.
The proportions, the ornamentation.
All was perfect.
Fey and formidable all at once.
The corbels delighted Mr. Sullivan.
The covered walkway echoed some of his Chicago buildings.
At first Junk Thief and Mr. Sullivan thought this must be a Julia Morgan design, but then they learned it was the work of Charles Dean.
