Sherman Minton's Silver Arches

4 years after taking this picture, this bridge has now been shut down due to cracking found in the structural supports. Crumbling infrastructure indeed...

Antique streetcar brought back into service along Market Street in the City. Like the famous Cable Cars, they're part of the regular commuter service, and standard transit passes are valid. This particular car started out life in Milan, Italy

The start of infrastructure, an idea, then a blueprint!

It is actually an adapter part so we could use a regular container of CO2 with our Soda Stream instead of the proprietary CO2 containers that come with it. My husband came up with and made the part, blueprint and all.
