Myrtle Avenue Subway, North Riverside, Jacksonville, FL (2/17/2013)

From Metro Jacksonville:

Many years have passed since the last streetcar ran down Jacksonville’s streets. Although most of the infrastructure associated with Jacksonville’s streetcar system no longer exists, if one looks hard enough, a little history can be found.

“The Myrtle Avenue Subway, opening up another convenient passage to the Riverside and Highway districts, has recently been accepted from the contractors by the city. This will give the company a new line to this territory, which we hope will be in operation within the present year.”

Stone & Webster Public Service Journal, Vol. 4 page 419 January-June 1909

Accepted into “Rusty, Crusty and Falling to Bits,” “The Urban Environment” and “Shadows & Reflections” (2/24/2013)

I’ve only had a camera during brief periods until now. However, I’ve been taking pictures in my head for 40-50 years. I finally decided I should try showing someone else what I see.

    Really nice, Mike!

  • Thanks, Carol. This was an interesting challenge for composition. The subject itself is interesting historically, but I tried a couple dozen shots for get one that was interesting photographically.
