Re: Tuscarora Almanac for October 13

As you know, the feeder cables were put underground, with access manholes on the Pratt campus, possibly elsewhere also I never looked.

Pratt's photo department recently put a collection online of some 19,000 images previously only seen in a file cabinet in the photo department archives in the ARC building basement, of photos taken of campus life from the 1940's through the 1970's. These include images of the Lex el on Grand running through what became the campus, and a set of the el being finally taken down in 1953. Some of those images show some officials in suits shaking hands obviously glad the el was finally going. link: jstor.org/stable/community.29972385

I've been toying with the idea of writing something up on the history of the structure at Grand and Myrtle, with its various configurations from 1885 on. It certainly was a very busy and noisy place at one time, something one couldn't imagine being there today.
