Heiress Lillie Hitchcock Coit left a third of her estate for a project to beautify the city of San Francisco. Architect Arthur Brown Jr. designed this streamlined art-deco interpretation of a classical column which was completed in 1933 atop Telegraph Hill. The first floor and staircase are lined with frescoes by WPA artists depicting modern urban life in the 1930s. This card includes all pieces and instructions necessary to make a complete paper model at 1:750 scale, approx. 3.55" tall. It is mailable, with space on the reverse for a stamp, address and a message. Each card also includes a short but informative description of the landmark the model represents. Instructions are included in the form of multi-lingual isometric diagrams.  Build Your Own Chicago and Build Your Own New York series are also available.
