Publisher: Behrendt

Richard Behrendt (1854-1909) was born in Germany, emigrated to the U.S. at age 23 in 1877, married German-born Julia Platschek (1865-1945) in 1885, and had three children. Behrendt was an importer and wholesaler of toys, novelties, stereoviews, and postcards in San Francisco. After Behrendt's death in 1909, his wife Julia, son Alvin (1885-1946), son Arthur (1890-1975), and son-in-law Irving Heineman (b. ca. 1882) continued the family novelty business under his name at least through 1932, with offices on the 700 block of Mission.
