She was right. Built in 1925, this building is unique and interesting. I hope you can read the plaque that tells a bit of its history and how material developed by Dow Chemical from that brine they extracted from underground was used to make "plastic mosaic". Ground glass rather than sand was used in the stucco and is what gives the color and sparkle to the murals.

Our day soon ended and we needed a coffee/tea and crumpets stop. And so we did. This full day of adventure was done and we headed home for dinner prepared by Vickie -- with cherry pie baked by her Dad (he was quick to say, with a shy smile, "it's a frozen pie"). Delicious.
