This little stairway wouldn't be noteworthy if not for the small retaining wall at the bottom. It's made from old grave markers, from when the city's cemeteries were cleared out in the first half of the 20th century. The grave markers from those cemeteries were reused in public works projects, most notably for the rain gutters in Buena Vista Park and the landfill around the Wave Organ.
