Where (And When) In San Leandro?

Today's picture is a puzzle in space and time.

 

Who can tell where and when this building existed in San Leandro's past?

Look carefully and you'll see some sign as to its purpose. That may be a clue.

This puzzle was supplied by a long-time resident. It may be unfair to newcomers who've only lived here the last 50 years or so.

Whether you were born in San Leandro or are newly arrived, you are probably here because you find this a good place to live -- maybe a great place to thrive.

Hint!

Congratulations to Elizabeth Yaple, Angela Marrujo and V. Yost who correctly identified last week's puzzle as a snapshot from the Pelton Cafe. 

Thanks also to Carlos, who contributed the Pelton picture.

San Leandro Clinic of the Kaiser Foundation Health Plan founded by John Mott, David de Kruif, and George Eckhart. I don't know the exact time of the picture, but I'd say the late 1950s or 1960s.

You never cease to amaze me. OK, for bonus points who is sitting on the steps and what is he reading?

Does the building still exist? Where is it located?
Chad Pennebaker October 13, 2012 at 04:04 PM
And, what is the address?
Chad Pennebaker October 13, 2012 at 04:05 PM
No. Who can tell what is there now?

the Morning News ?

....and to triple your score, Amazing Mike - can you make out the license plate in the image? ;-)

Sir Anthony, it doesn't matter. Most of Patch's demographic was at the Bal Theatre until the wee hours last night (10:00pm) watching a smashing, sold out performance of "Stand Up for Davis Street Comedy Night" featuring surprise guest, George Lopez. Most of us won't be up until noon. :)

It's so sad that City Hall destroyed all the wonderful archetecture that this little town had. Greed and ignorance, pure and simple.

Leah... The Morning News was the local paper around that time I think, but now I'm wondering if it's a senior moment recall, or just a nickname because of the AM delivery. (we got started around ten, could be that too)

Anthony you`re right. Back in the 1960`s I delivered The San Leandro Morning News before I went to school in the morning. The other paper back then was The Oakland Tribune which some of my friends delivered after school.

Yea, I delivered the Oakland Tribune from about 1951-56. Good Job! Taught me a lot! I had three different routes at various times: Bancroft from Estudillo to the High School, Mitchell & Lewis and then Glen Drive. I think I still know almost every house that took the paper.

I love San Leandro

Yes San Leandro's Paper was the Morning News, offices on East 14th Street if my old memory serves me right. The Daily Review and the Oakland Tribune were the afternoon papers. Having delivered both the Daily Review and Oakland Tribune at various times in the late 1950's and early 1960's.
