California Tire & Rubber Company, Salt Lake City Utah.


Another painted building from an area of Salt Lake that was once an industrial area.

Firestone Building and mural, Salt Lake City Utah.


This photographs shows the backside of the Firestone Building in Salt Lake City, as well as a neighboring mural. This was an industrial area of Salt Lake a century ago, but the area now just off downtown features restaurant and shops (but is also near an area that can be a bit rough).  The appearance of the back of the  Firestone Building is much different than the front, and the building now houses an Italian restaurant.  The building was built in 1925.

Crane Company Building, Salt Lake City Utah.


This building in Salt Lake City was built in 1910 in a district of Salt Lake which once featured a variety of industrial structures. Today a Vietnamese restaurant is on the street level.  The Crane Company that built this building is the company which makes the well known valves and plumping fixtures, and it was used in the course of their business.
