Azorean Construction Co.


2211 9th Avenue

This is in a driveway along the great palm allee of the former Francis “Borax” Smith estate. It reads “Azorean Construction Co. / 236 Moss Ave. / Oakland Cal”

Azorean would be a typical business name for East Bay immigrants from the Azores Islands, part of Portugal. Names like Vieira and Casqueiro come to mind.
