Bones of the City.

Torn Up Trolley Tracks
(S.W. 5th & Taylor)

I work downtown & the City's been digging up the street on Taylor starting at 4th and going up to 5th.

An unexpected (but not really surprising) side effect of my obsession with research on Portland's trolley past is I've perused enough old route maps to know where the tracks once were. So when the City began digging at 4th and Taylor and clearly moving thier way to 5th, I knew there was a good chance they'd run into buried tracks at 5th.

Sure enough, a few days later I emerged at 5:00pm to find a pile of rusted, twisted, pieces of steel (and/or iron) resting on the curb.
