1963 – Auction Alley

1963f

5538 Foothill Boulevard

This address is a nondescript auto-repair place today, but I guess at one time it was Auction Alley. Does anyone remember?

1963 – Roy Kendall

5745 E. 16th Street

Kendall was a long way from home.

1963 – R. G. Wolfe

Magee Avenue at Kansas Street

1963 – C. Valenzuela

1963c

3232 Galindo Street

I think that C. Valenzuela must have been located in Fruitvale, because while his marks are spread all over Oakland, they seem to be thickest on the ground here, including some hard-to-find dates.

1963

400 Franklin Street

The concrete here in the produce district is quite old and battle-scarred, much of it laid down in the 1910s apparently by G. Skidmore.

1963 – Angelo C. Sposeto

1963

3298 Lakeshore Boulevard

This mark was hiding underneath a sandwich board. It’s the first example I’ve found of an Angelo Sposeto mark with a date.

This is the 1,000th post on Oakland Sidewalks.

1963 – Gallagher & Burk

1963

999 42nd Street

Gallagher & Burk did the whole block of Linden Street between 41st and 42nd Streets.

This is the last year I needed to get in the 1960s.
