    It is in the sidewalk around McKinley Park and shows that the sidewalk was built as a Works Progress Administration project in 1940.

    This is a sidewalk stamp. Marking that it was completed as a part of the Work Projects Administration. It was renamed this in 1939. Original name was Work Progress Administration.The date reflects the year the sidewalk was laid.

    This is a sidewalk stamp from the Works Progress Administration or the Work Projects Administration, in the year 1940. The WPA was a federally funded project during the Great Depression that earmarked specific projects that would put people back to work. One of the largest WPA projects in East Sacramento was the water tower on 33rd Street. There are probably a handful of places in East Sacramento with this particular sidewalk stamp.

    This is on a sidewalk going around McKinley Park. Ditto for what Will said about the WPA.
