1947 – A. Dinelli & Sons

24 Blair Avenue, Piedmont

After all these years I’m still finding new names underfoot. Adolph Dinelli lived in Berkeley, and three men with his surname, Charles (cement finisher), Frank (laborer), and Tony, were listed in the 1941 directory.

Dinelli was born in Italy in the early 1870s, emigrated to America in 1894 and died in February 1947, so this mark was made after his death. Oddly, a son named Charles died in 1923 at the age of 17. Perhaps the Charles listed in the 1941 directory was a nephew.
