Williams (General Contractor)


5418 Miles Avenue

This one is mysterious. Another stamp is on the corner of Hudson and Locksley that is even more obscure. I don’t know if it’s the same Williams as Harry Williams.

    I wonder whether there’s some connection here with Sorensen Bros. Looking at the Sorensen Bros. stamp on Park View Terrace, the stamps appear to be virtually identical except for the middle line, and on that line Sorensen is oddly placed at the far left side while Williams is at the far right side. Perhaps they were partners at one time?

    I do believe you’ve got it. The counterpart stamp you mentioned is at https://oaklandunderfoot.com/2010/05/17/1914-15/

    I found two of the complete stamps on the corner of 59th and MacCall. “General Contractors – Sorensen Bros. & Williams – Oakland, Cal.” No date or year that I could see.
