City Planner, Ed Landry reminded me that there is a sidewalk stamp near the northwest corner of Albert Street at Eyre. It is the only sidewalk stamp of this kind that we know of that exists outside the Kingsmount area.

The mystery of the sidewalk stamp at 128 Wembley has been solved. The owner informed me that when the sidewalks were being replaced he used a concrete saw to cut out the sidewalk stamp at the northwest corner of Wembley and Homewood. He later incorporated the sidewalk stamp into the new lock stone design of his driveway. I forgot to ask why there is a space between the E and M. Oh well, next time!
