Industrial disease

Whenever I'm out for a walk or a ride, I try to avoid the main streets. Ostensibly, it's a traffic-hating, life-saving strategy, but beyond that there's a certain poignancy to quiet, commercial-industrial areas that have been around for what seems like forever.

As you can see here, sometimes they wear their years well and sometimes they don't. But the detour is always worthwhile, because you just know everything here has a story.

Your turn: Where else should I go walking next time?

I like going out of the way, too. No telling what you will find!

Hmm next walk? Do you have a city map? Close your eyes and pick a spot! This charming (useful) photo has a great street name. As a child we lived on Ann Street!
