1920 – N. J. Lindstrom

25 September 2022

1418 Harmon Street and 3234 Baker Street, Berkeley

Nels J. Lindstrom used a variety of stamps in his long career: an oval mark in the early 1910s and a racetrack mark from 1922 to the 1940s. In between, he used straight text with various configurations. These two 1920 marks differ in the placement of the date, but the letters, including the tiny “S”, are the same.

The early years of Schnoor Bros. are quite rare in Oakland, or at least they’re not marked.
