Carquest Auto Parts
Calexico, CA
This Carquest Auto Parts store building entrance canopy appears to be from the 1960s. This photo is from 2018. I don't know if this was the original occupant. By 2020, the building was vacant and boarded up. [map]

Imperial Irrigation District
Calexico, CA
This Imperial Irrigation District building appears to be from the 1960s. [map]

Sam Ellis Store
Calexico, CA
The Sam Ellis Store opened in 1915. The concrete canopies were probably added in the 1960s. [map]

Central Park Pavilion
California City, CA
The Central Park Pavilion overlooks a man-made lake. The lake was filled in 1961 and I assume the pavilion was built at the same time. [map]

Police Department
Calipatria, CA
This Police Department building was probably built in the 1960s. The tile mural was added to the building sometime after 2012. [map]

Fredericks Realty
Carson, CA
There was a Fredericks Realty office at this address in 1963. I assume that was this building's original tenant. The building now houses Foot Expertz. [map]

Chatsworth Veterinary Clinic
Chatsworth, CA
I believe the Chatsworth Veterinary Clinic building was built in 1960. I believe that is the original occupant, although it is now part of the VCA chain now. The pergola in front of the entrance must have been a later addition. [map]

Hexaplex
Chester, CA
This building is an example of a Hexaplex. These structures were developed by the Radexhomes Corporation which was based in San Francisco. The buildings were marketed in the early 1970s for residential use (the "Mini Mansion") and recreational use (the "Closed Pavilion" and "Open Pavilion"). Radexhomes went out of business in 1974. The radial folded plate design features 12 triangular panels, coated with fiberglass "Duradek". The panels were bolted in place with six cast metal brackets. Other Hexaplex structures were built in Half Moon Bay, Santa Cruz, and Glen Ellen. The 702 Minnesota Ave. building in San Jose, CA looks like a match.

The Chester building housed a residence originally. It was built around 1973. The building now houses Dare to Be Dazzled. [map]
