Before and After #5

Neither of today's before and after photos were taken by me. But I like them.
From 1940 (via mainemeory.net)

...And from 2008 (via microsoft live search maps)

things look pretty similar except for the addition of I-295 on the left and the expansion of Hadlock Field. The addition of I-295 clearly interrupted this neighborhood, as well as every other one which it passes through. For a detailed and interesting proposal on how to replace this freeway, visit C Neals' Rights of Way blog.
