Unearthing History

There is a LOT of road work happening in downtown Salem at the moment. In an effort to move forward and make things up-to-date and "better" there has been a bit of history uncovered in the process.

Yesterday a local restaurant owner/chef, David Rosales, tweeted a photo of some old streetcar tracks that were uncovered in the construction. Coincidently I was just about to start working on a project that involved some of Salem's history so I thought it was chance to go capture some photos of the old tracks before they were covered back up.

Not the greatest photos ever, but the fact that I was able to see a piece of Salem's buried history, no matter how brief, was pretty amazing.
