Chicago boardwalk

    Walking across the Wabash Avenue bridge last night


    I am struck that it is fashioned of wood planks.  A major downtown street in a major American city has a  wood plank walkway.

    It reminds me when I first visited downtown Chicago, so much of it was a frontier city.  A wooden walkway over a bridge is a last vestige of this.

    I look around.  I see Chicago's honesty in the expression of materials everywhere.  



    Wood planks.  Concrete curving plastically.  Steel girders and glass planes.  Rivets everywhere.  Brave the cold.
