  2. A fine active photo with lots of good details like the pigs(?) hanging at the butcher shop. The buildings one can see through the viaduct on the far side are gone. It's a very impressive structure up close.

  3. Rich with detail. I wouldn't have noticed the pigs though if Mike hadn't pointed them out.
