1927 – S. Giuntoli


Elmhurst Avenue at C Street

Silvio Giuntoli lived at 1159 Elmhurst Avenue and was responsible for the pavement on Elmhurst and the adjoining streets, largely in 1927. There are many excellent marks in this neighborhood, and the work has held up well for nearly 90 years. I chose this mark to feature because it includes the day and month as well as the year.

The 1927 Alameda County phone book lists three Giuntolis, all in Oakland: Norma, a stenographer at the Oakland Fish Company; Pasquino, a plasterer; and Silvio.
