Sidewalk WPA engraving
Project type: Infrastructure and Utilities, Sidewalks and Stairs
Quality of Information: Good
Site Survival: ExtantView Project in a Separate Window
The Works Progress Administration built sidewalks and/or completed improvements on Tyndall Avenue in Tucson. WPA sidewalk stamps are located along Tyndall Ave. between First and Second Streets.
The sidewalk may seem a minor project, but it is
in front of a lovely old row of adobe style craftsman cottages that have been converted to “marginal” academic uses (public policy, global sustainability, women’s studies). But that lovely scale and architecture are being obliterated by high rise upscale student housing.
Personal observation and photography.
