Moss, Editor Thomas L. Scharf, Assistant Editor, presented by the San Diego History Center(Below are short excerpts from this article.)

The Journal: “The first issue of the California Architecture And Building News was published in February, 1879, by George W. Wolfe and his son, James, both San Francisco architects.  In addition to a regularly published roster of practicing architects, a business directory, published with the journals, concerned itself with the building trades, i.e., Asphaltum Works, Electrical Bells, Blacksmith's Tools, Woodcarvers, etc....”

The Trimming: “The journal commented that bentwood furniture was in vogue, and that woods and wood veneers could be used artistically, especially carriage-work (gingerbread). A story on the quarrying of onyx on the Pacific coast defined the various kinds and their location, where they have been used, and the dollar expenditures on their use in building.”
