The buiding on the right used to be a auto repair garage and machine shop. Look closely when driving by at the faded signage painted on the bricks. When the decades of ugly paint covering the bricks were removed, these original signs appeared ... and it was decided to retain the old bare brick facade without repainting. On the north side, notice the star washers and bolts to hold the building together, an early means of earthquake proofing!
