Elm Main and Commerce portal to/from Downtown.

Here I was driving, facing east. Commerce is a one-way street which runs from West to East, Main is two-way, and Elm is one-way and runs East to West, the opposite direction we were heading in the photo. On the other side of this bridge is Dealey Plaza, where JFK was shot. Before the 1930s, the actual area where we are in this photo, along with the bridge itself, was the course of the Trinity River. The river was moved over about a mile as part of the massive public works projects that took place during the Depression and gave a great many unemployed Americans an occupation. The green containers are on a train that is passing over the bridge.
