It's the Spanish Colonial Revival building on the corner of Solano Ave and Carmel Ave. This is the balcony on the Carmel side. It's a great old building.

Hey, those are MY windows!

It appears that may be the back side of the Albany Veterans Bldg.

It's the window above the Safeway Pharmacy business in the 1300 block of Solano Ave, at the Carmel corner.

I see we have a number of very observant readers (including Peter, whom I assume probably sees the inside of his windows a lot more often than the outside.) Looks like we'll have to find something more challenging next time.

Sean, right you are. Congrats! You're the first of several to correctly identify this building. Please send an email to charles@patch.com so that we can arrange to get your prize to you.
