About ten years ago the city did a major overhaul on the stretch of Clark Street where it marries Ashland for the few blocks between Andersonville and Devon. Part of the facelift entailed pulling up the long-buried streetcar tracks that ran down the middle of the street. One of the happy consequences was the yield of large granite paving stones that apparently made the bed for the tracks. People showed up with flatbeds, shopping carts, and Radio Flyers to collect the bounty. Today when you walk down the streets of the neighborhood you can see bits of old Clark Street formed into front porch aprons, gangways, and garden borders all over the place.
