This sign on Broadway still exists, but probably not for much longer. For many years the location was the home of Anderson Carpet and Linoleum, a business that was started when Linoleum Sales of Berkeley bought the Anderson Carpet Company in 1973. A couple of years back they moved operations to West Grand, and now the site is due to become a new location for True Burger. I'm still looking into whether they were connected, but there was an Anderson's Carpet House that dates back 1891, founded by Severin Anderson and later run by his son Harry S. Anderson (who also served as a city commissioner).
