2208 E. 17th Street

This is one of the rarest years on Oakland sidewalks. It’s a long story, but I blame Nixon.

2328 19th Avenue

If dates from the 1970s weren’t so scarce I might have let this one go.

1974 – A. J. Ferrero

41st Street at 4070 Opal Street

The house at the corner of 41st and Opal is a century-old Craftsman in immaculate shape, with this A. J. Ferrero stamp and a 1940 McGettigan. This is only the second stamp I’ve found from the seventies. In 1974 I moved back to the Bay area, and a movie star was governor then too.
