While drawing a seismic upgrade for a structural engineer, I found a conflict between the original (1950) foundation plan of a San Francisco Bay Area theater and the floor plan provided me by the architect of the remodel.

The architect indicates the pilasters on the back wall occur on the outside face of the wall, while the original drawings indicate them on the inside face.

The original foundation plan..

I used Google Street View to verify from a thousand miles away that the wall was built with the pilasters on the outside face of the building as the architect indicated. Handy tool, that.
