Description
The unique style concept of the Sacramento County Library’s Arcade branch is visibile from the Marconi Avenue in this 1976 photograph. The jet traffic from McClellan Air Force Base as well as vehicular traffic from Marconi and Fulton Avenues were a motivator for the sunken, earth-berm, an architectural motive which seeks to muffle sound. The branch was located at 2443 Marconi Avenue.
