ABQ Railyard Visit

P1080602a

Post-Script: Before this more recent push to reserve the railyards, the site was host to vandals, the homeless and a slew of garage bands in search of some out-of-the-way rehearsal space. There's a lot more information in this Wikipedia article.

As is fitting with the era of the railyards, I typed this piece on the mid-1920s Corona 4. Images via Lumix G5.

I hope it all gets sensitively redeveloped. It looks like an ideal place for a market, exhibition space, rehearsal space, etc.

Gee, you do take some fine photos! They capture tha shadow of what the railcard once was. It's often a shame that those who have the power to save a structure such as this one lack the imagination to see how it could look if it were saved. Always the way.
I hope it gets preserved, Joe.
