Where the Sidewalk Really Begins

This morning I finished my walking tour of the Adams Point neighborhood. I’ll miss that one, because it’s really nice. There are lots of magnificent old houses, and streets shaded by leafy trees that have been around long enough to grow impressive canopies.

I discovered one other thing about the area that’s old: the oldest piece of sidewalk I’ve seen yet. This one was dated 1907. I’m curious to see whether or not I ever find sidewalk that survived the 1906 earthquake.
