1936 – F. E. Flaherty

19 October 2015


1744 101st Avenue

This mark shows how carefully F. E. Flaherty did his handiwork, drawing a guideline and using a straight tool of some sort. Only the curves threw him. Oddly, just a few weeks earlier he used a different technique and had no trouble. His work was fine, but his brand wasn’t very good. I think he should have kept his old racetrack-format stamp instead of giving it up in 1935, but maybe it was stolen or something.

1936 – (F. E.) Flaherty

10212 Walnut Street

This appears to be the first year F. E. Flaherty abandoned his old racetrack mark. Sometimes he used his initials, sometimes not.

1936 – Geo S. McMullin

1106 88th Avenue

This is a superior strike of this date. It also shows a glitch, evident in the other example too, wherein the “6” in the date is superimposed on a “1.”

An unusual hand-drawn mark by Ryan.

1936 – Poblitz

2624 57th Avenue

Most of the Poblitz marks on this stub of a street are from 1935, but I guess he came back later to finish the last lot on the back corner.
