Gardner Building, Ventura

Ventura, Ventura
California

The building was the location of the law offices of Earl Stanley Gardner, author of the "Perry Mason" series, during the period when he wrote the series while engaged in his own law practice. Situated in the heart of downtown Ventura and just down the hill from the San Buenaventura County Courthouse, the glazed terra cotta facade had failed at multiple locations, and required specialized surface repairs and faux painting to restore the veneer to its original appearance.
