Other dated things: hydrant

Rusting Avenue

Once again I’ve run short of sidewalk stamps, so until I can rustle up some more here are a few special dated things. This 1956 vintage fire hydrant is up by Leona Canyon. Anybody see other hydrant makers who dated their work?

1956 – Hayward Concrete Construction Co.

8654 International Boulevard

Out in Deep East, parts of E. 14th Street didn’t get made over. This is a new maker for me, in a part of town where I didn’t expect any maker’s marks at all.

4433 Fleming Avenue

An unusual large, hand-drawn mark by Valenzuela.

1956 – Steadman & Powell Inc.

2401 Harrington Avenue

I am excited by this modest mark, which not only gives me my first date for the Steadman & Powell firm, but also a third configuration: a rare thirties-style mark, the standard block style and this one, which denotes the team as an incorporated firm.

1956 – R. G. Wolfe

4283 Fruitvale Avenue

This mark completes my survey of Fruitvale Avenue, a major thoroughfare that goes from the Bay to the Oakmore hills.
