1978 – Apodaca Bros.

10 December 2019

2900 Lincoln Avenue, Alameda

Apodaca Bros. started using this oval text stamp in 1976. Early examples are rare; I have dates going back to 1967 and up to 2005.

After 12 years of intensive searching, this is the first sidewalk stamp I’ve ever found stamped with a 1978 date.

1512 East 12th Street

When the old Catucci Building was remodeled as a church, the new sidewalk reflected that change of status, although whoever did the work left no mark other than this.
