: The furniture company M. Friedman & Co. is listed in SF directories from after 1885 until about 1925. It is, However, never at "O'Farrell at Polk"; it is in the 200 block of Stockton 1885-1895 and the 200-block of Post 1900-1925. The owner was Marx [often Max] Friedman, b. Russia, July 1849, d. SF, 4 Aug 1934, wf. Julia [Sloane?], lots of children.

: : I have an oak dresser made by M Friedman & Co.
: : On the back is a decal or stencil that says :
: : M Friedman & Co. O'FARRELL AT POLK San Francisco.
: : Can anyone tell me when this company was in business at this location?
: : Was it prior to the 1906 earthquake?
: : Thank you...Tom


I am from Vancouver, BC. I recently bought an old antique dresser from a retired Aussie. The label in the back also has the M.Friedman & Co. San Francisco on the back. Im also wondering it worth. there was easily 5 coats of paint on it. it has two smaller drawers on the top and 4 drawers that follow with original handles.
