It is no stretch to think of a photographer or a writer as preservers of history, but what about construction workers? Today's photos are a reminder to us that there is more to preserving history than just photographing or writing about it. Today I offer a big Thank You to all who maintain our nations historic districts.
Seeing photographs and reading about cobblestone paths tend to give me a sense of the quaint or romantic. While walking and driving on these paths although it did give me a feeling of going back to a quieter time, it also reminded me of the lack of comforts faced by our ancestors. For cobblestone paths create a rough path for the rider or walker. Watching this worker repair the cobblestone street I had to admire the hard work that our ancestors went through to line their cities, towns and villages with this then modern form of comfort.
