1931 – Pool


3630 Patterson Avenue

Behold a mystery: This mark by one of the Pool family members is made with a stamp and not hand-drawn. I’m documenting this mark because my previous example, from not far away, is cracked. Looking at both, I see the same nicks that appear around the edges of the letters in the old P. Ryan mark, as if they were deployed like a branding iron.
