The Lost Mashrabiyahs of Pacific Heights

When we last looked at this house in February, 2007, it was fine. Now 2786 Broadway seems to have lost its facade. Built in the sixties by the late James Schwabacher, Jr., a noted San Francisco music patron/tenor/pencil heir, the house was an eccentric mash-up, setting a pair of black lacquered bay windows in the the form of classic Egyptian mashrabiyah, both of which now seem to be MIA, against a simple stucco wall. A Hollywood Regency-meets-Bay Area-goes-to-Cairo-scenario if we ever saw one.
