It's very interesting that the folks who built this used galvanized rock faced sheet iron panels and a sheet metal fancy embossed cornice.Usually all this was in wood on false fronts.Thanks for the photo.
Anthony: The building may have been rebuilt for tourists but the entire right side is adobe and alot of it. Across the street is the wood front building you mentioned. Although I've seen the galvanized rock utilized on many a buildings here in Arizona, from southern to northern Arizona.
Thanks for the info.This sort of fancy metal work is great to see when it's still intact.We've an old adobe here in Riverside that's been altered many times over the past 150 years and the current shop owners didn't even know they were in one of the last couple surviving examples here.
