Walker & Eisen

Albert R. Walker and Percy A. Eisen were both native Californians, born in the 1880s.  Their partnership began in 1919 and lasted until 1941.  A prolific firm, Walker and Eisen designed such notable buildings as the Fine Arts Building (1927) and the Oviatt Building (1925).

Oviatt Building

Formerly the headquarters of one of the most prestigious haberdasheries in the city, the 1928 Oviatt Building features Art Deco fixtures and literally tons of Lalique glass.
