The Kern County Bar Association building may have been built in 1940. If so, this remodeling must have been done in the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

Beverly Hills, CA
New Lesser Building
Beverly Hills, CA
The Gale-Wilshire Building is listed online as a medical building. However, I believe it was originally a law office. It is referenced as having been built in 1946. If that's the case, the building got a mid-century makeover in the 1950s or 1960s. [map]

The New Lesser Building was designed by Sidney Eisenstadt and built in 1963. The building originally housed Louis Lesser Enterprises, a real estate company. [map]
