Thanks to SushiK, Jonas, and Jason for correctly identifying Thursday’s Sidewalk Photo as Frankfort Avenue in front of the Blue Dog Bakery in the Crescent Hill neighborhood. Here’s a new sidewalk photo to start off the week. Tell us where it is in the comments.

Also, here’s a quote from an Edmonton, Canada transportation official getting to the point that transportation is about more than getting around (via Overhead Wire): “The LRT [Light Rail Transit] is not just about moving people,” says Bob Boutilier, the general manager of the city’s transportation department. “It’s about building a city.”

  1. Willow, almost to Longest. Just out of sight on the left is the house where I met my wife. It belonged to Prof. E.R. Hagemann at UL. A mutual friend of my wife and me was house-sitting there, had us over and introduced us.
