My recent visit to the Oakland Fox Theater was very interesting. I saw first hand what nearly 40 years of neglect will do to a building. The photos below look better than the building does “in person”.
The shots below give a clue to the condition of the walls and the plaster pretty much throughout the entire building.
Below, you can get an idea of scale of the work that needs to be done on the ceiling which is larger than a football field. If you look closely at the upper left-hand corner of the image on the left below, you can just make out Andrew working in the corner.
