As far as I know, nobody has managed to positively identify the street in which Delano took this photograph. After much investigation, I found a positive match on Lawn Street in South Oakland, which was then adjacent to the Jones and Laughlin Steel plant, which Delano quite rightly referred to as the 'mill district'. By 1926, South Oakland and Hazelwood had the largest number of coke ovens anywhere in the world, utilised to produce over two million tonnes of steel. – Jordan J. Lloyd
