1947 – Gallagher & Burk

October 25, 2015


1452 104th Avenue

A much better strike than the previous one I documented.


1947 – J. Widell

September 20, 2015


9221 D Street

By this late in his career, J. Widell’s hand-drawn script was looking old-fashioned.

1947 – Jepsen Bros.

September 10, 2015


9703 Sunnyside Street

I love this mark, which comes 10 years after the latest actual stamp the Jepsen Brothers used and 7 years after leaving a hand-drawn mark elsewhere. I have to think that the brothers were retired by this point, having started the business in 1911. Maybe they lived nearby.

1947 – Doyle L. Hallum

September 9, 2015


1321 93rd Avenue

I’ve found this year elsewhere, but the date was so dim you had to trust me.

1947 – S. Giuntoli

July 5, 2015


948 86th Avenue

1947 – J. Widell

June 17, 2015



2804 Oliver Street

The first mark establishes the date. The second is on the other edge of the job and includes the name Moniz, presumably Arthur Moniz.

1947 – J & J General Contractor

June 16, 2015


2804 Oliver Street

I know the date because this one appears along with a dated mark by J. Widell.
