Frank Newman Furniture Company

I am trying to find information on the Frank Newman Furniture Company that was in San Francisco in the 1950's. I do not know where in the city it was located or how long it was in business, etc. The only details I have are it was a small company that mainly did work for the government and schools; but did make some custom furniture (of which my grandmother's most prized possession was a dining room set).

In the story of Ralph L. Selleck on this website, it is mentioned that "He played [baseball] for Lowell and on Sundays at Big Rec for Owl Drugs or the Frank Newman Furniture Company."

Any information on this company would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
