A San Francisco Classic in Oakland

Heading to the BART Station today and I happened upon the former I. Magnin location in Oakland. I. Magnin was a high-end department store that was founded in 1876 and at one time ran locations in six high-end hotels throughout California.  This Oakland location opened in 1931 and was noted for its distinct terra-cotta exterior. After a series of mergers and acquisitions, it closed in 1995.
