Authentic bits

Note the Dodge "C" cab rack bodied express has flat rear fenders from a non Dodge. The Dodge roadster on the far left has the boldly crowned correct Dodge rear fenders that match the style of the front fenders of the truck. That being said, the four cylinder Dodge of this type was an excellent vehicle.

Ventura Motor Oil

On the building to the far right.

And don't forget

to get your crankcase serviced.

The Constable and the Crime Shack

"No one knew more about criminal activity at the "Crime Shack" than Colma Constable S.A. Landini."

The Constable

The constable in 1924 (and for many years prior) was one Silvio Arthur Landini. Born in California in 1876, he appears to have served for many years as constable for Daly City before growing ill after partaking in a fad diet and dying in 1935.

No, seriously.

From the Santa Cruz News, March 6, 1935.

Next Door

Interesting to see the two workers in the building on the right, a blur as they work -- one in the top window and the other coming out the front door.

Also some posters on the windows in the next building reading "Crowe." Maybe a local election?
