Los Angeles Inspector Stamps
Most of the stamps I noticed around Los Angeles this weekend were inspectors' stamps rather than contractors' ones, and often the inspector and contractor would have made their stamps at the same time, as you can see here. This is definitely different than the way things were done in the Bay Area!
