Sidewalk Stamp W.P.A. 1940Photo: Joan Edelstein, Creative Commons
The Works Progress Administration built sidewalks on Begier Avenue in San Leandro CA.
“Sidewalk stamp is in front of the garage door on Begier Avenue. around the corner from the house connected to it at 799 St Marys Avenue. The garage is across the street from 1445 Begier Avenue between St Marys Avenue and Glen Drive in San Leandro.”
I noticed this stamp around the corner from my daughter's house when she moved there in 2015. I knew what WPA meant, but didn't appreciate the depth of information until taking the awesome Living New Deal Class with Richard A Walker, who explained it, at OLLI Berkeley.
