1940 WPA sidewalk stamp
The Work Projects Administration (W.P.A.) constructed sidewalks in Clayton, New Mexico. Evidence of such can be found at 10 Main Street, where two stamp imprints declare “WPA 1940” and “WPA 1942,” respectively.
ca. 2015: “The downtown sidewalks will soon be replaced in a NM Department of Transportation construction project, but the WPA stamps will be preserved and placed in the new sidewalks.” As of 2017, the two stamps were isolated from the newer sidewalk with rings of bricks.
