Down the Grade

This view from Commerce St. shows a streetcar entering the slanting, short private right of way that takes the route down to Pacific Ave.  There are many old warehouses and other buildings nearby, in a district now trending toward occupation by restaurants and boutiques, and home to a branch campus of the University of Washington. 

A small marker between the rails in this area commemorates the final laying of track for the short line.
