1817 Grove St. (now Martin Luther King Jr. Way) above 18th St., in downtown Oakland, was the Humbert home in this period. From 1899 it was the site of Leon Humbert's wood and coal yard, and by 1906 it had expanded to a store for wood, coal, fuel, feed and groceries. Although the store building has been long since demolished, reportedly the painted sign was still visible on the adjacent brick wall through the 1960s. The Humberts' only son John was born while the family lived here. Source: Oakland City Directory
