Who doesn’t like an egg hunt? The literal ones are hard to come by, but luckily we’ve got an inexhaustible supply of figurative eggs to bag.
If you’re The Orbit, one of these hunts puts you on your hands and knees, on someone else’s sidewalk, whisking the effluvia of the streets from the shallow impressions made by the city’s long-gone concrete masons and parsing out their disappearing names.
For Easter this year, we’re going to keep it real simple. The next (perhaps final?) installment in our continuing series on sidewalk stamps is almost all pictures with none of the boring blah blah blah to wade through. Honestly, there’s just not that more to say on this subject and we know our busy readers have bunnies to rustle and glazed hams to consume.
Happy Easter, y’all!

Friendship definitely turned out to be the mother lode for these. I walk more frequently in Friendship now and see if I can unearth any you’ve missed.
For sure. By our un-scientific analysis, block-for-block Friendship definitely has the most stamps *and* variety in the city.
Do you happen to remember the intersection in Oakland where the Guy Orlando stamp is located? That is my great grandfather and I’d love to get a photo of it when I’m in town next month. Thank you!
Erika: That one is on Atwood Street, just about half-way between Bates and Louisa and very near Las Palmas. (I believe I was waiting for tacos when I spotted it.) There are other Guy Orlando stamps out there too, but I can’t name the location of any of them.
