1952 – Pat Ryan

October 26, 2015


2016 103rd Avenue

Pat Ryan must have been a professional, because the work is excellent, but I haven’t seen the name before.


1952 – Larry Frye

August 16, 2015


9241 Sunnyside Street

Larry Frye marks are scattered and scarce.

1952 – Lee Railsbach (Railsback)

December 17, 2014


2627 60th Avenue

Very interesting: besides being the first hand-drawn mark I’ve found by Hayward contractor Lee Railsback, this sprawling example in a driveway shows that he signed his name Railsbach. Also note the “Greek E’s” he used.

1952 – J. H. Fitzmaurice (V)

December 16, 2014


61st Avenue at Foothill Boulevard

This is huge—the first date I’ve found for this configuration of the Fitzmaurice mark.

1952 – Frank M. Brown

August 9, 2014


5420 Ygnacio Avenue

My first Frank Brown mark from the 1950s.

1952 – VALJON

June 17, 2014


4432 Carson Avenue

Nice esthetics.

1952 – Nick Ferri

February 14, 2014


Brown Avenue at Kansas Street

A new latest date for Nick Ferri.
