Tracks to nowhere


Train tracks lead into a vacant building on the Boston waterfront. This building was built in 1940 to help build ships but is now empty and vacant. As in many cities in the U.S. that used to play important roles in shipbuilding, that industry is now a thing of the past.

Its a good thing you feature them even if they are not used anymore...those who built it would feel happy that you did.

I always wonder about tracks and roads that go nowhere. Why were they built originally? Why did they stop using them?

I was just on the Marseille blog where she is also talking about the port of Marseille shipyards which are suffering from loss of work.
But they make interesting pictures!

I find these places so interesting and poignant. This is a nicely framed shot.
