I was picking up some pizza from Bazbeux’s last night on Mass Ave and I saw all the construction that is taking place. The project going on is resurfacing of the street, sidewalk reconstruction and addition of electrical conduit for additional lighting along the avenue. At the expense of looking like a hipster with my highly bastardized photo via Instagram on my old iPhone (first version) I snapped this picture of the exposed bricks and streetcar track of yester-year. There is no amount of pavement or sidewalk construction that ever dampens my enthusiasm for wanting to see streetcars return to our streets so in that respect, I think this photo was neat enough to share with all of you and perhaps inspire a little bit of vision of what used to be, and what could be with enough political willpower. I’d be happier than a pig in slop if something like this were sprung on an unsuspecting citizen base when the city announces what it’s doing with the IFD HQ.
