1905

1905

1042 63rd Street

Here’s another example of the mysterious mark I found on Alcatraz earlier this year. Now it’s revealed as a unique crescent design, but I’m little closer to deciphering the name than I was before. For now I’ll think of this as I. E. Hahn or Kahn.

    There is one in Berkeley at 1616 Josephine. While not much clearer, it looks like “H.E. HAHN” (1906)

  2. Andrew Alden Says:

    Hmm, the 1905 (but not the 1906) directory lists an M. Hahn, “cement worker.”

  3. Dave Garrett Says:

    I could be convinced. My photo is inconclusive. Definitely not an “I” per your older post.

    I’ve been hunting and documenting Berkeley sidewalks since September. Your blog has been a great resource!
