Beginning the restoration of the historic storefront of the
Old Town Pasadena Commercial Building

In restoration work, new brick had to be used to fill in the openings. This shows the contrast of what changes were made, using cement-based mortar and grout.

The existing building was constructed with lime-mortar and grout, which one could scrape out with a thumb nail.
