The Paving Stone Case: An Osborne Crescent Mystery

A resident on Osborne Crescent SW in Richmond/Knob Hill recently bought a house always had trouble with a patch of grass in our backyard. The homeowner recently uncovered an old patio and sidewalk under the grass in that spot and found an inscribed paving stone from 1913.

The house was built in 1952, so it was surprising to find a paving stone from 1913. Any ideas what would have been on this site prior to the construction of the house in the 50’s?
