    I didn't realize this before, but Ellsworth Ave. used to extend across the railroad tracks through to where Whole Foods/Borders is now. You can see this bridge pretty good in this photo: http://images.library.pitt.edu/cgi-...

    Great photo Ben, I was kind of confused about how the bridge actually crossed. I guess I'm not surprised it's gone, doesn't seem very helpful.
