Galli (Galli Construction Company), Fernando Nelson (Fernando Nelson & Sons), Oliver Rousseau and Henry Doelger in San Francisco's Sunset district from the 1920s to the 1940s. Both model homes and large development tracts are indicated; collectively these building endeavours blanket the district, generating its noted suburban character. While exact locations are more difficult to track in Bechtle's Sunset works – unlike the Potrero images, which frequently indicate intersections, these often have more general titles – many clearly display the housing built by Doelger and his contemporaries and thus comprise another pivotal example of the artist's focus on the urban–suburban continuum.
