Mid-Century Modernism with Monique

Jun 6, 2023

Monique chats with historian and author Heather David, known for her books “Motel California" and "Mid-century by the Bay: A Celebration of the San Francisco Bay Area in the 1950s and 1960s." They discuss Heather's childhood love of mid-century modern buildings, the allure of this architectural style, and her exploration of motel and sign preservation. Enjoy some laughter as they recount the restoration tale of Tiki Bob and reminisce about Heather's crush on a specific mid-century building.  Join the conversation as they explore how preserving old buildings and signs not only tells a story but also creates a profound sense of place!


“I think If you care about something, you are naturally inquisitive and you want to know the story” -Heather
