1974 – Geo. Jardin

24 York Avenue, Piedmont

1959 – Larry Frye

18 March 2018

6 Wildwood Avenue, Piedmont

There aren’t a lot of Larry Frye marks out there, so I was happy to find a new date for him.

1947 – A. Dinelli & Sons

17 March 2018

24 Blair Avenue, Piedmont

After all these years I’m still finding new names underfoot. Adolph Dinelli lived in Berkeley, and three men with his surname, Charles (cement finisher), Frank (laborer), and Tony, were listed in the 1941 directory.

Dinelli was born in Italy in the early 1870s, emigrated to America in 1894 and died in February 1947, so this mark was made after his death. Oddly, a son named Charles died in 1923 at the age of 17. Perhaps the Charles listed in the 1941 directory was a nephew.

1981 – A. J. Ferrero

3 March 2018

Manor Drive at Arroyo Avenue, Piedmont

1977 – A. J. Ferrero

1 March 2018

Holly Place at Manor Drive, Piedmont

1960 – C. Valenzuela

24 February 2018

126 Ricardo Avenue, Piedmont

This gives me a single and a double mark from this year with the stamped date.
