Regarding Streamline Moderne. Santa Cruz Historical Building Survey, Volume III, March 2013:

"Dr. Francis Norman Nelson moved his offices to this unique Streamline Moderne building just before World War II and operated his dental practice into the 1970s. The nautical design features of this small office building include porthole windows and a front façade that bows out like the hull of a ship."
