It's Day 16 of this year's March Edness! Can you guess the location of the photo? Enter your guess in the form below by 8:00 p.m. and be specific. (What's March Edness? Learn all about it here.)

Point Value: 4


Guessing has closed and the answer has been revealed.

This one tripped a lot of players up, but the answer is the Orcutt Trade Center. It houses several buildings so we accepted answers of 135, 127, or 125 W. Clark Ave in Orcutt. The two-story building was originally the Orcutt Hotel (subsequently called the Orcutt Trading Center and Pioneer Square) and was built around 1922. Currently, it houses a variety of businesses including retail sales and office space.

According to an article in the Orcutt Pioneer, the building was built by a Santa Cruz bootlegger Stephen Dal Porta in the face of prohibition, there was a complete hotel downstairs and a speakeasy upstairs.

I really like that they have a peace sign. In the 60s the war hawks said the sign was a "chicken foot print". Actually it was designed by a man in England in 1958. He used the idea of "signaling flags" making their N and D, for nuclear disbarment. Glad to see Penelope805 listed at the top again.

Being listed at the top has nothing to do with contest standings.

Dear Parvopup: if you are asking about my comment, it is excited, game-related chatter. Cheers!

Auuugh! A boneheaded miss. I skipped just one important city on my historical building search. Oops
