Thanks, Earl..Bristolian..and Noir Noir, for your follow-ups on the California Shoe Manufacturing Co. I really appreciate it.

Despite being wholly utilitarian, the building has a certain charm to it.

I also like how the building appears to be sitting in the middle of nowhere.

Now we need to find the previous location in Venice...perhaps that building is still standing.

Excellent find, N N.
