1938 – Frank Lopes

November 9, 2015


9811 Olive Street

I’ve recorded this date before, but here’s a strike that removes all doubt.


1938 – C. Troja-Sisto

7815 Sanford Street

1938 – (F. E.) Flaherty

September 6, 2015


9616 Cherry Street

F. E. Flaherty sometimes used a large stamp with just his last name. This loooks like the same one I’ve recorded from 1937.

1938 – C. Valenzuela

August 3, 2015


1823 92nd Avenue

This is not only a better strike, but an earlier strike from this founding year of Carlos Valenzuela’s career. Another thing about this driveway site is that he put his mark on the corners of the driveway as well as at the mouth.

1938 – P. Barale

May 6, 2015


2338 83rd Avenue

A better strike than my previous example.

1938 – A. Casqueiro

January 22, 2015


7018 Lacey Avenue

Casqueiro worked from the late 1920s to the early 1950s, so you might call this his midpoint year. But I have almost nothing from the 1940s, so you might call this his midlife crisis.

1938 – Frank A. Stead

5912 Foothill Boulevard

There are two of these handsome marks at this address, now an active branch of the Institute of Divine Metaphysical Research.
