Under the Arches
Portland, Oregon, USA
These images were taken under
the arches of the old flyover where NW Lovejoy St. elevated to
meet the Broadway Bridge. Rumour has it they were originally created
as part of a Workfare programme back in the 1940's; if anyone
knows the full story, I would be most interested to hear it. The
railway yard adjacent to the site has recently been redeveloped,
and the flyover demolished. Unfortunately I did not catalogue
all the work there at the time, just the ones that struck me.
If anyone photographed others, I would be happy to post them here.
I have tweaked the contrast, hue and colour saturation of these
images in an effort to enhance your viewing pleasure; hopefully
without changing them too much from the original.
