Cola Street

Houses on Cola Street and William Street, Mount Washington, seen from the Smithfield Street Bridge

These houses on Cola Street (and a couple on William Street behind it) are in various styles and come from various eras. But they all either were built or have been adapted for one main purpose: to suck in as much of the magnificent skyline view as possible.

The name “Cola Street” is odd. Apparently it was originally “Coal Street”; did it succumb to a persistent typographical error?

Seldom Seen Arch

The Wabash Railroad built this picturesque structure to carry its line over Saw Mill Run and the little lane that led back into the village of Seldom Seen.
