Rouppert Office Building : 1955

515 Broadway, Sacramento, CA

Small building at 515 Broadway is Rouppert Office Building by Sparks. Rouppert also owned 513 Broadway next door.

Hat tip to GS & CCD!

Louis Rouppet was the proprietor of Quick Lunch Restaurant and owner of 513 Broadway.
Likely mis-spelling of Rouppet to Rupert. Mr. Rouppert passed away in 1957 and the Carter Sparks designed building seems to have not been built. - via GS

Sim's Diner @ 513 Broadway
CURTIS HOLE IN THE WALL @ 513 Broadway as well
Owner : Jim Gouveia (2012)

"Quick Lunch, The rest" circa 1959 (via Sacramento City Directory 1959)
"Quick Lunch rest, Rear vacant" circa 1956 (via Sacramento City Directory 1956)
-- Rear Vacant? Perhaps it was an Office Building with 1 office and a restaurant?
