Stevens Avenue


Hat tip to Erik Osborn for this photo of Stevens Avenue. Erik writes, "You've probably seen this elsewhere, but with the huge potholes the old city is emerging into view, trolley tracks and all. This spot on Stevens is especially large. Thought this might be an interesting topic for your blog, this reminder that for many years trolley was the way we got around town."

Hi,

I was just checking out people that are interested in economics and came across your blog.

I write and paint. Take a look at my blog, you might find it of interest.

Had a thought last night:

We need to reveal ALL the old trolley lines to Portland. Wish I had the chalk spraying bike Josh Kinburg made: http://www.bikesagainstbush.com/blog/about.php

Could ride down the street at night, "painting" the old lines on the street all through Woodfords, even down Forest Ave.

Would wash away after a few days...
