1924 – W. O. Nelson

1 March 2023

1918 Lakeshore Avenue

Another stamp emerges in the low winter light.

1924 – Riechel & Bredhoff

8 June 2020

519 Van Buren Avenue

Riechel & Bredhoff had two different stamps, one with a high, tight arch inside the outline and the other with a lower, gentler arch (like this one also from 1924).

Corners: 21st Avenue and E. 28th Street

16 April 2018

This sidewalk was laid by C. A. (Carl) Lindstrom. The dates on his marks extend only from 1923 to 1925.

1924 – L. M. Rasmussen

26 May 2015


2056 84th Avenue

This is a much better example than my previous one.

1924 – F. Laranja

7 February 2015


1222 82nd Avenue

This block of 82nd has several Laranja marks, which makes sense because the address in the mark is nearby (it’s an undistinguished house today). And nicest of all, here is the first dated example I’ve found.

1924 – Lindholm (Mike) and Carlson (George)

19 December 2014


3231 63rd Avenue

I have the feeling that these were two fun guys.

1924 – Pool

4 December 2014


2945 61st Avenue

I’m keeping separate tallies of Pool and W. Pool marks. Not sure yet why there’s a difference.
