Sidewalk Stamps - V. Dizillo, 1938

V. DiZillo Cement Contractors, 1938.
I found this stamp right outside the door of U & I Liquors, near 49th and Telegraph in scenic Temescal.  It was obvious that most of the sidewalk around the stamp had been replaced in the relatively recent past, but the crew had taken pains not to ruin the stamp.  For some reason I really like the thought of a construction crew cutting around this two foot square piece of pavement so they could leave a 73 year old sidewalk stamp in place.

  1. Indeed -- that's very cool that they took the time to work around it.
