1957 – J. Barale

November 23, 2015


1 Sequoyah View Circle

This was a pleasant surprise, first because stamps are scarce in the Sequoyah neighborhood and second because it extends the record of the Barale dynasty two more years.


1957 – Cragun & Cragun

Bancroft Avenue at 88th Avenue

I documented this same Cragun & Cragun mark at 68th Avenue and Bancroft, although the year on that one was indeterminate. It was definitely not 1957.

At the moment I’ve run short of sidewalk stamps, so look forward to a few days of special marks.

7804 International Boulevard

I love this mark for some reason. Maybe it’s just the thrill of continuing to discover new makers even after covering most of this city.
