5401 Fairfax Avenue
There are several of these here, attesting to the antiquity of the Fairfax neighborhood.
1350 E. 33rd Street
This hand-drawn mark establishes Sandin & Swanson a year earlier than their attractive oval stamps record.
432 Van Dyke Avenue
Now that it’s 2012, I’ll be posting every 1911 mark I find. Van Dyke is a nice little street off lower Park Boulevard.
1856 39th Avenue
My first F. W. Metge mark with a date. It has been a real pleasure to survey the Fruitvale area and see marks from the days when Fruitvale was still its own town.
1807 40th Avenue
Esterly used both proper stamps and handwritten marks. Someone was definitely showing off here with his graceful cursive in fresh concrete.
