The sign reads:

The Joe M. Granito Block

The earliest records for the five lots between Simoni's building and this corner list various members of the Granito clan, but by 1923 they were all in the hands of Rafael's son, Joseph M. Granito. At different times, these lots had been occupied by offices, a grocery, and a saloon, but Joe M. consolidated them into a general merchandising complex. In the early 1920s Joe leased the buildings then occupying the lot next door to the Sahd Brothers for a general store. In 1931 Joe added an auto service station on this corner. Joe was for many years Cerrillos postmaster, and Master of the local Masonic Lodge. This private residence was built in 1975 on the site of Joe's garage.
