1986 – Pioneer Const.

400 block Marshall Way, Alameda

I took a hike through Alameda and spotted dozens of tempting sidewalk stamps, many of which I have not seen in Oakland. I ignored those. But some, like examples I’ve posted from Berkeley, add new dates to the record of Oakland sidewalk makers, so here’s one that adds to the single dated example I documented in Oakland.

4501 Reinhardt Drive

I don’t usually record nameless marks, but dogs can be forgiven for illiteracy.

707 37th Avenue

This forlorn little block, where you take your electronics recycling, has a pristine version of the 1986 Davis mark I’ve documented previously. In fact, it differs from the other in having two dots flanking the date.

Euclid Avenue at Adams Street

A rare mark from the 1980s, and my first from 1986.
