Things are different in America. We quickly construct transportation systems-canals, then railroads, then highways, then superhighways-and then more or less abandon them.
These vestiges of earlier transportation systems are mostly still there, and are a great place to search for artifacts of earlier times.
On a recent trip home after working out of town I photographed some good stuff.
Come back Wednesday, I'll show you some more things from down the road a stretch.
