Fancy Brickwork Leads to Burritos

You'll find this patch of brick pavement in front of La Villa de Jerez Taqueria at 512 San Benito Street in downtown Hollister. The taqueria serves yummy burritos by the way.

The year 1924 must mean when the pavers were laid. I've wondered whether this shop was the only one with a brick entry way.  Anyone know what business was there then? I think the storefront was a shoe store during the 1960s. But, I could be confusing it with a shop in Salinas.

The name "Simons" may refer to the Simons Brick Company, which was a Los Angeles company that manufactured bricks during the 1920s.
