Hello Dennis and Eric!
I have enjoyed reading your series on Thompson Avenue’s namesake and his water company. Attached please find the front and back of a 1912 Alameda water bill sent to my great-grandfather Anton (although his last name and Alameda are misspelled). 

“Read Carefully The Other Side” for sage advice on life from the water company.
