  1. Interesting. I saw very similar granite paving blocks (cobblestones?) beneath the asphalt on Erie many years ago when it was being repaved. Maybe the City should just uncover these to slow drivers down rather than applying the fake brick pedestrian walks (many of which appear to be coming apart) at popular crossings.

  2. I guess these days they don’t lay a base to put asphalt down like they used to, with apparently individually lain granite bricks.

    But seriously, thanks for taking photographic note of a window on the past.

    Reminds me of the quote about there being a crack in everything, and that’s how the light gets through.

  3. I believe this is what is under melrose as well if memory serves from last time they patched part of it.

  4. King’s Highway too. When they repaved years ago I asked the crew, and they said the reamining cobbles were only intermittant. If they were correct, it would be expensive to rebuild. Nevermind the maintenance costs, which I imagine are muich higher. Still, it would be great if we could have these back. (Sorry cyclists)

  5. It looks to me like a rare archeological find indicating the presence of an ancient civilization. We should immediately stop all road construction throughout the city until a full and thorough examination can be completed to ensure nothing of great importance is lost forever. New repairs will probably be up and running again within two to three years.
