Tupper & Reed

"Every time a man puts his hand down to cut or carve or chisel or guild a house, he must express his own self."  ---William Raymond Yelland, Architect, 1927

In 1925, Yelland designed a fairytale-like building on Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley.  For the next 80 years,  John C. Tupper and Lawrence Reed operated it as a music store and sometime concert hall.  Today, it's a cocktail bar and live music venue, listed on the National Registry of Historic Places.
