WPA sidewalks in San Leandro, CA
Project type: Infrastructure and Utilities, Sidewalks and Stairs
Completed: 1940View Project in a Separate Window
The federal Work Projects Administration (WPA) constructed sidewalks along Elsie Ave. and Bancroft Ave. in San Leandro, California: “WPA 1939” is stamped into the sidewalk in several places along Elsie Avenue. “WPA 1940” is stamped along Bancroft Avenue.
Elsie Avenue may have also been paved as a WPA project; the street appears unpaved on a 1938 city map.
