Cook’s Oil Company

312 Adams Street

Cook’s Oil Company, founded by Fred R. Cook, is listed in the city directories from 1922 into the 1940s. In 1924 its headquarters had moved from 1333 Market Street to 1350 Powell Street, presumably in Emeryville. As of 1938 its main office was at 2111 San Pablo Avenue. The Tribune records that they fielded a baseball team in the Golden Grains Cereal League in 1938.
