5336 Walnut Avenue
On an early spring day in 1984, four kids from the block inscribed these four blocks on the sidewalk. Fabian, now age 41, happened to be there as I surveyed the block, and he shared memories of the day and his comrades Johnny, Kesha and Omar. As far as he could recall, all of them had stayed in Oakland.

This address is a nondescript auto-repair place today, but I guess at one time it was Auction Alley. Does anyone remember?

I present this mark, even though I already have a good example, because on this mark Mr. Troja-Sisto was careful enough to make it clear that the little cursive scrawl in the middle line says “st” for Street.

Most of the Poblitz marks on this stub of a street are from 1935, but I guess he came back later to finish the last lot on the back corner.

A cute little mark to go with a cute little street.
