1914 – P. Ryan


5201 Manila Avenue

P. Ryan obviously made his marks using individual letters. The wire marks on some of the characters are interesting too. P. Ryan may or may not be related to T. A. Ryan, whose dates are later.

    Yesterday I found another example from 1914, on the 4800 block of Webster Street, that is precisely the same as this. I also found a 1910 example, which although quite degraded looks just like this. So clearly I am wrong to conclude that Ryan made these marks one letter at a time. I’m not sure that anyone did.
