As I've mentioned in a few previous posts, there are still a few relics of city streets of the past. Here is one such cobblestone thoroughfare. It runs down to Commercial Street, and if you are hankering for a taste of what streets in the city were like and why alignment shops probably did a brisk business, this would be my Exhibit A. A trip down this short lane can still make your fillings rattle a bit. All I can say is placing these stones on the streets of Portland must have been a painstaking process. They had to be better than a dirt lane, right? Get ready for a bumpity, bump trip into the past.
