Wood block

Yesterday, we ventured to the east side of Cleveland to drop off my (incredibly awesome) entry for the Cleveland Botanical Gardens photo contest and since we were making the trip, we wandered over to the historic Hessler Street Fair for a taste of 21st century bohemia. In doing so, we "discovered" the only wooden street in Cleveland, Hessler Ct. (link has autoplay video)

It should be noted "that while wood block streets, when properly constructed, were nearly as durable as any other surface, they were only suitable for level streets as when they were wet they became too slippery for horses."
