Title supplied by cataloger. The Pacific Mutual Building, located at 523 W. 6th Street, are actually three interconnected buildings built between 1908 and 1929. The original structure was designed and built between 1908-1912 by John Parkinson and Edwin Bergstrom. Since then, it has undergone many changes: the North Side addition was built in 1916 by William J. Dodd; a twelve-story structure was built in 1921 by William J. Dodd and his associate William Richards; the Garage Building was added in 1926 by Schultze and Weaver; and the West Side addition was erected in 1929 by Parkinson and Parkinson. It underwent Moderne remodeling in 1936 by Parkinson and Parkinson; and in 1974, the building underwent an extensive restoration by Wendell Mounce and Associates, with Bond and Steward, which brought it back to its Beaux Arts revival; finally, the entire building was renovated again by the Westgroup, Inc. in 1985. The Pacific Mutual Building is Historic-Cultural Monument #398. View of the Pacific Mutual Parkway, as the frame for the Garage Building is being erected. This side will eventually become the rear of the building, and the main entrance will be found on the opposite end (not visible from this angle). Piles of lumber, steel beams, and other construction debris can be seen at the base of the frame. This building was added in 1926 by Schultze and Weaver, and erected by the William Simpson Construction Company. Photograph dated November 2, 1925.
