Engelke Brothers Sidewalk Maker's Mark. 1913. Casper Wyoming.

It used to be the custom, and probably at least still partially is, for cement companies to stamp their names in their product.  this is an example of a Engelke Brothers mark, in downtown Casper, from 1913.

Many Casper sidewalks were of this vintage in the general downtown area, but in recent years the sidewalks have been torn out and replaced, so these really old stamps are not nearly as common as they once were.
