I’ll tell you, when I first saw these ugly flying buttresses holding up St. Dominic’s Church at 2390 Bush, I thought they were remedial, you know, like an add-on to a building in danger of falling down.
Then later on I saw images of other old-school buildings what had flying buttresses as original equipment, so then I thought, no, I was wrong, that’s just how this massive building on Bush was constructed.
But just today, I discovered that the nine concrete buttresses holding up St Dom’s are, in fact, add-ons, from back in the 1990’s, after the Loma Prieta. (Thanks, Wiki. You’re so smart!)
I still think that these things are seriously ugly, oh well.
But check it, the church has a five star average from 44 Yelpers, so this congregation must be doing something right, huh?
