1. Braley Building Marker
Inscription. Built in 1906 for Edgar R. Braley, an influential figure in early Pasadena. Braley was a well respected businessman who also served as a park, fire, and police commissioner. The Braley Building at 35 South Raymond Avenue was the former site of two earlier structures owned by Braley which housed his produce market and bicycle shop. The new building was home to Pasadena's first electric automobile dealership and was designed by C.W. Buchanan who interpreted the Chicago style detailing in the building's windows and decorative elements. The Braley Building was one of the first major rehabilitation projects in Old Pasadena and is individually listed in The National Register of Historic Places.
