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.
I have stated before that I always like the actual workers and teh SW1500 by EMD is right there among the best. I recall Dad and brother would curl their lips and snarl “Just a Crud” and begrudgingly they would snap a photo.
Perhaps I felt sorry for these workhorses and they do remind me of the good times in rail yards all over the US. These images are also not location marked but I believe they are in the SF Bay Area from October of 1975
Alright reader I need your help placing the location of this slide.
The building in the background and the interchange make mw think Oakland but I am more often wrong than right in these things.
I like to use the original scan to look for clues. It’s 4.5 MB and I use a 32″ TV screen to play detective.
Things of note the new GM’s – Oldsmobile I think – for 1976 are open to the air – not clad to avoid damages and the Dr. Pepper logo above the “5” is probably not official. The engineer has his long sleeves rolled up, glasses a watch and a wedding ring.
The building is quite distinctive and quite formidable but I cannot place it at all.
