Riverfront Vistas

I love the massive, hulking strength of early 20th Century architecture. Overengineered to last forever, their remnants stand proudly, often in better shape than their younger counterparts.Whether it's the massive approaches to the MacArthur Bridge, or the long dormant Cahokia Power Station, these behemoths, blackened with soot from Southern Illinois Coal, or just a lazy black paint job, never cease to amaze me.
