Goin' Down

On Sunday we went down to Corliss Landing. The building on the left is the former Corliss Steam Engine Building and then the New England Butt Company (brass fixtures and recipient of jokes) and is now - suprise! - condos (but some of the first done in the 70's). The exploding snake of stone, steel, concrete and dirt is the ongoing demolition of I-195, which is being moved to the south so that several neighborhoods can be reunited with Downcity in the distance. We Managed to score some nice cut granite stones that were in the discard pile to make stepping stones for our garden. A rather pedestrian use for a former super highway.
