Fresno City TBM 2534

I was driving to work this morning and, due to a stuck thermostat which caused my motorcycle to drink fuel MUCH faster than normal, I ran out of gas. While I waited for my wife to bring a gas can, I saw this City of Fresno TBM (Temporary BenchMark) #2534 on the curb near where my bike came to rest.  It's in front of the Fresno Memorial Gardens Cemetery gates.

The mark is described as a chiseled square on the top of the curb, south of Whitesbridge Avenue.  It was found as described.
