e_r, From what I was able to find, the date is a little confusing.

In October 1913, the Torrance factory was still in the planning stages

Boot and Shoe Recorder October 29, 1913


It seems that by May 1915, the company was offered for sale in a different trade publication. Unfortunately, no specific address.

Hide and Leather May 1, 1915


In July of 1915,the company was involved in a financial lawsuit

So perhaps the postcard was written after a change in ownership related to the lawsuit?

The building is intriguing to me as I worked in a very similar one in Torrance for years. Torrance was hit pretty hard by the 1933 Long Beach earthquake and this one could have been a casualty.
