1922 – Hennig

1922tt

1427 103rd Avenue

This mark pushes back Otto Hennig’s dates back a few years.

1922 – N. Lena

1922ss

1380 102nd Avenue

It looks like N. Lena may have modified a stamp with a “191X” date to make this. But I have no evidence that he was active before 1920, so who knows.

1605 90th Avenue

Here’s a beautiful strike from the only year I’ve found from the elder Mr. Lopes.

1734 Auseon Street

It looks like early in 1922, M. B. Wiggins used large numerals for the date. Later that year he used smaller digits. “2-22” was pretty special. Maybe he started business on 2/2/22, the same day that James Joyce’s Ulysses was published.

1922 – R. C. Malone

1922pp

6806 Fremont Street

There are four of these at this address, all of them pristine. A good way to start the new year.

2900 Seminary Avenue

This is a much better example than the one I had before.

1922nn

2808 Monticello Avenue

Finally I’ve found a dated mark by M. A. Lopes, who may or may not be related to the later Frank Lopes. I think of him as Lopes the Elder.
