Describe J. W. Pearson here
* Pearson's Hardware, 4014 Piedmont Avenue, Oakland, California. James W. Pearson, or "J.W." for short started the store known as Pearson's Hardware. The year he started the store I don't remember. I worked there as a teenager when I was in high school. His son in law Herb Anderson took over the store when "J.W." passed away. I may be able to find more information by digging into my old records, For sure the owner was named James and not John.
