This is the spot where A.D. Weiss Lithograph Company used to be, at 2025 McKinley Street in Hollywood. Rob started his printing career at A.D. Weiss in 1966 when he was 20 years old. He worked there until November 1978 when we moved to Kent, Washington. Over time, A.D. Weiss sold to St. Ives, which in turn sold to Angstom Graphics. In 2011, Angstom Graphics went out of business. The building stood empty for years. We never expected to see it torn down and replaced with a new charter school, but that's what happened. The charter school opened this year. Here's Robert standing on the spot where he went to work so many, many times.
That's the new charter school in the background. It's called Avant Garde Academy.
Here's what the entrance to A.D. Weiss used to look like. The other two companies Rob worked for during his printing career - Craftsman Press in Seattle and Northwest Web in Eugene - are also gone.
