Title Washington Market, Soebeler Watchmaker, and Beer Parlor, ca 1890
Description People pose in front of shops along Ward Street (now Estudillo). By about 1891-1896 when this picture was taken, Gorman's Saloon was still very much the same, but Reid's Harness Shop had become the Washington Market, whose choice cuts of meat are being aired outside. The next shop has a sign identifying the proprietor as a watchmaker and jeweller. Excluding the boys on the roof, the third man from the left may be Socrates Huff, and the fifth from the left is John (No-Hat)Driver. The owners of the shops also may be out in front. (Information from "A San Leandro Centennial Album" p. 31).
