1959 – Larry Frye

18 March 2018

6 Wildwood Avenue, Piedmont

There aren’t a lot of Larry Frye marks out there, so I was happy to find a new date for him.

1959 – Frank M. Brown

1 February 2015


3345 69th Avenue

This establishes Brown at quite a later date than I had before.

1959 – R. D. Stoecker Inc.

27 December 2014


1985 Scotia Avenue

A lot of these around here. The neighborhood homes are quite homogeneous, like a cookie-cutter piece of suburban places where I spent my tender years.

1959 – C. Valenzuela

16 November 2014


2915 Madera Avenue

1959 was the last year in which Valenzuela left his marks doubled-up like this; also the last year he used his nice metal numerals to make the dates (like this one from June). This appears to show that he had given those up by early October.

1959 – R. G. Wolfe

26 June 2013


3960 Waterhouse Road

This is just a little ways from yesterday’s 1958 mark, but I checked it carefully and it’s a 1959, the latest date for R. G. Wolfe I’ve found yet.

1959 – Gallagher & Burk

11 July 2012


Beaumont Avenue at Allman Street

This is actually a gutter mark. It’s the first Gallagher & Burk mark I’ve found from the 1950s.
