The front of the historic Salz Leathers building remained unchanged for over 140 years. The lettering was more recent. It read in full, "A.K. Salz Company" and featured the company logo for "Salz California Saddle Leather." An unnamed employee stood in an upper window. The tannery was located along the San Lorenzo River on River Street/Highway 9, just north of Highway 1.
