The loss of rail, in one sad picture

JHK’s post today on rail coincided with a picture taken a few days ago on my bicycle commute.

Here, a pothole (which has been around for at least a month!), with a bit of old cobblestone showing through, as well as what I’m 99% sure is an old rail from a streetcar line that used to exist:


Our rail-friendly past, paved over, with a sad excuse for a road in its wake.   At least the potholes are marked, so perhaps one day, yes, they’ll get to them.  *Sigh*.
