Paul, I read and commented on your post about the Bell Street overpass. Most interesting to me is the shot dated 5-10-30, which shows not only the “holes” in Railroad Avenue that drop into the tides underneath, but also appears to show the Lenora overpass being built. Fascinating! Looks like you posted all the photos that the piece can hold, but here’s one more just for your own amusement. I took this in February from what’s left of that Lenora overpass, which as you noted no longer crosses Alaska, but still crosses the tracks. I call this photo “Two Pigeons”. I was doing an experiment that I enjoy periodically — walking around town with my glasses doff’d, which makes me blind to details and makes me more conscious of contours and shapes. Later I laughed when I saw the pigeons in the photo for the first time. The photo roughly coincides with your 1914 shot showing construction of the Bell Street Terminal. Cheers! Matt
