How about this scene for a modeler’s inspiration?
That font is so stylish and hand painted I am sure
Also the J.B. Sherr Co Wholesale adds a nice reverse space in classic 70s brown.
Struck out on Sherr.
I did Google around and spotted a Feb 15, 1983 Note in the NY Times:
“Amfac Inc., a diversified company based in Honolulu, said its Distribution Group had acquired the assets of three subsidiaries of Supply Corporation International of Houston. The units are the Tyler Dawson Supply Company, T-D Group and Mar-Ind Supply Inc. Terms were not disclosed.”
Also one was in San Diego :
MAR-IND. SUPPLY OF SAN DIEGO, INC.
MAR-IND. SUPPLY OF SAN DIEGO, INC. is company based in NATIONAL CITY, CA 91950, California. This company was established on 2000-08-17 and registered under entity number C2258912. MAR-IND. SUPPLY OF SAN DIEGO, INC. was founded8142 days ago.
The company is classified as FTB Suspended
So I am unsure if this is Oakland California but I suspect it may be.
