Acacia Avenue at Golden Gate Avenue

In 1913, when the Oakland Paving Company laid down this sidewalk, Golden Gate had its original name of Hays Avenue.

Corners: Hays and McAdam

May 18, 2015


Here’s another dated and signed corner. Oakland Paving Company made it in 1913. However, Hays Avenue was renamed Golden Gate Avenue and McAdam Street became first Broadway Terrace, then Romany Road. You have to be careful what you put in concrete. In fact you’ll see that the pavers used a “V” to spell “Hays.”
