In a 1912 advertising entry in that year’s El Paso City Directory, the firm of Trost & Trost mentions plans for the Occidental Building in Albuquerque. The actual building designed by the firm was erected four years later, and so we are unclear whether this 1912 reference was for a different structure, or described preliminary plans for the 1916 build.
