Providence Area "Sidewalk Stamps"

I've been photographing these for a while now, building a small collection from the Providence/Pawtucket area, (though at least one is from Cranston.) These are brass markers advertising the work of the cement companies that built the sidewalks. Though it's hard to know for sure without more research, they all appear to date from the first half of the 20th Century.
