    I know the entire area very well from 1967

    Wagner's working farm was not a playground

    Before Allstate, was all corn

    Before 53 ended at Dundee

    When Dundee road was 2 lane and empty

    Before the Botanical Gardens, I saw them grow it all from scratch

    Before the extension

    Before the city became madness, https://blog.databid.com/blog/11-meg...rks-in-chicago

    What mostly comes to mind in your bridge

    I have seen too many homeless under a bridge

    A lot has changed since 1967, some of it better than others.

    As Paul Kantner & Jefferson Airplane proclaimed "Life is change, how it differs from the rocks" See how I sneaked in a large format reference? ROCKS!!

    When I was photographing the Chicago River I had a lot of very positive interactions with homeless people. They were curious, respectful, and protective of me—a very interesting glimpse of a life I know almost nothing about and can't imagine.

    I went back to Ohio
    But my city was gone
    There was no train station
    There was no downtown
    South Howard had disappeared
    All my favorite places
    My city had been pulled down
    Reduced to parking spaces
    Ay, oh, way to go, Ohio
    Well, I went back to Ohio
    But my family was gone
    I stood on the back porch
    There was nobody home
    I was stunned and amazed
    My childhood memories
    Slowly swirled past
    Like the wind through the trees
    Ay, oh, way to go, Ohio
    I went back to Ohio
    But my pretty countryside
    Had been paved down the middle
    By a government that had no pride
    The farms of Ohio
    Had been replaced by shopping malls
    And Muzak filled the air
    From Seneca to Cuyahoga Falls
    Said, ay, oh, way to go, Ohio

    Like this one! Sent it to my buddy who grew up in Ambler. I visited him there 40+ years ago. He said his grandfather was friend of the painter who painted a collection of the bridges in that area, including this one that he described as the "bridge over the Wissahickon Creek right across from Germantown Academy".
