Julia Morgan 150 -- January 20, 2022

Julia Morgan, the first woman to receive an architect's license in California, was born 150 years ago today, on 20-January-1872.  She performed many commissions for the Hearst family, most famously Hearst Castle, which I hope to visit one day. 

The Hearst Building at Third and Market in San Francisco, seen above, was built in 1909-1911. In 1938, Julia Morgan redesigned the facade. I took the photos of the building and its entrance on 18-December-2008.
