I wish to contribute a postscript to Linda Stansberry's fine, well-written and nicely presented cover story about the Carson Block restoration.
It was in 1924 that the building's street facades were covered with stucco. That "modernizing" was mentioned in a Humboldt Standard newspaper article on June 13, 1924. And, in the August 16, 1924 edition of the Standard, there is a large photo of the "newly renovated" Carson building in a full-page completion announcement.
