:: Original Sidewalk

OriginalSidewalk

The houses built on the origin of the city had stone slabs like these paving the sidewalks. This one is probably around a hundred years old. The small ramp across it was built to help cars enter the garage when the street was inclined and one wheel would have a small step to enter. Lately, people are more concerned with cars than with persons and all the way from the curb to the garage door is leveled, so pedestrians have to climb a step when passing by, as we see further.

As casas construídas na origem da cidade tinham lajes de pedra como estas pavimentando as calçadas. Esta tem provavelmente cerca de cem anos de idade. A pequena rampa atravessada era construída para ajudar os carros a entrar na garagem quando a rua era inclinada e uma roda teria um pequeno degrau para entrar. Ultimamente, as pessoas estão mais preocupadas com os carros do que com as pessoas e todo o caminho do meio-fio até a porta da garagem é nivelado, então os pedestres têm que subir um degrau quando passam ali, como vemos mais adiante.
