Alta Vista (255 South Bunker Hill Ave)

This building was built in 1904. It was the home of John Fante in 1933, and served as the model for Arturo Bandini’s residences for both the novels, “Ask The Dust,” and “Dreams From Bunker Hill.”

The building was demolished in the mid 1960s as the CRA slowly cleared the hill for commercial development.
