1936 – F. E. Flaherty

October 19, 2015

1936mmm

1744 101st Avenue

This mark shows how carefully F. E. Flaherty did his handiwork, drawing a guideline and using a straight tool of some sort. Only the curves threw him. Oddly, just a few weeks earlier he used a different technique and had no trouble. His work was fine, but his brand wasn’t very good. I think he should have kept his old racetrack-format stamp instead of giving it up in 1935, but maybe it was stolen or something.

10212 Walnut Street

This appears to be the first year F. E. Flaherty abandoned his old racetrack mark. Sometimes he used his initials, sometimes not.

1936iii

1106 88th Avenue

This is a superior strike of this date. It also shows a glitch, evident in the other example too, wherein the “6” in the date is superimposed on a “1.”

1936 – Poblitz

1936ggg

2624 57th Avenue

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.
