1927 – F. E. Flaherty

1927rrr

1732 82nd Avenue

1913 – Reardon-Dowling Co.

April 25, 2015

1913

8100 Birch Street

This date is awfully obscure, but it’s definitely not 1912.

1912 – Reardon-Dowling Co.

April 24, 2015

1912

1672 81st Avenue

This very old mark, on a long expanse of good strong sidewalk, tells me that I’m edging into historic Elmhurst. Reardon is a familiar name, but not Dowling, although this is rather near Dowling Street.

2010 – Andrew Hernandez

2010c

7830 Alder Street

1937 – F. Verheyen

April 22, 2015

1937rrrr

4120 Kuhnle Avenue

Another hand-drawn example from this early year for Verheyen, who did most of this block.

1937 – Nick Tribuzio

April 21, 2015

1937qqqq

7839 Locust Street

I am delighted to see this early example of Nick Tribuzio, hand-drawn as follows: “Nick Tribuzio / 7518 Weld St / SWeetwood 0235 / 12-20-37″

1934 – Ransome Co.

April 20, 2015

1934bbb

1424 79th Avenue

Ransome has a long record in and around Oakland. This is a new configuration for me.
