1. Yasunaga Produce and Transfer Company Marker
Inscription. Occupying the entire south side of Taylor Street between 5th and 6th was a truck transfer company owned by Mr. K. Yasunage. Farmers had to sell their produce in San Francisco and Oakland markets and needed someone to transport the produce. Most farmers had Mr. Yasunaga’s trucks come to their farm to pick up the produce and take it to the market. Once in a while, if the farmer had a truck, they would bring the produce to the truck transfer company yard so it can be carried to the market.
