Throwback to three weeks ago!  We just finished repairing cracks and spalls in the decorative cast stone columns and capitals at the top of the clock tower of the Mudd Hall of Philosphy, a beautiful Tuscan-style building opened in 1930, at the University of Southern California.

 

And how about that beautiful clear blue LA sky in the middle January!

Large murals that used to grace the facades of the Meeker Baker and Press Telegram buildings as they sat vacant will be repurposed and reinstalled by David Van Patten and James Carey at the renovated Meeker Baker building.

#TBT RMS Queen Mary

It took about 4 years to build the Queen Mary which sailed the North Atlantic from 1936-1967.  Its now permanently docked in Long Beach as a hotel and fantastic place to have a party.  This impressive art deco ship is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

We’ve worked at the Queen Mary off and on for several years.  This month we’ll be back and forth to venerable ship completing restoration on a couple of the murals, including the “Royal Jubilee Week” in the Observation Deck Bar as well as “Dressed Overall at the Quay” and “The Sea.”
