WHERE IS IT?

Wednesday Where Is It
updated: Sep 08, 2011, 1:18 PM

Congratulations to those who guessed this week's Wednesday Where Is It. The huge parrot is part of the mural on the side of the old Pierano's Market building, which is now the home of Jonathan's Mediterranean restaurant. Originally constructed in 1877, the historic building was built above a section of the intricate aqueduct and lavenderia water system that served the needs of the San Buenaventura Mission and nearby Native American village, known in those days as Shisholop Village.

The principle feature of this domestic water system is a massive rock, tile and concrete structure, which still lies below the floor of the rear portions of the Peirano Market Building and the adjacent structure, long known as the Wilson Photographic Studio, which is now occupied by the newly created J's Tapas. The lavanderia is now encased in soft sand to ensure its preservation.
