Last of the Griswolds; Saint Paul, MN

Well, they're not actually the last Griswolds, but there aren't a whole lot of them around anymore. Dan sent me an email a few days ago saying there was an MoW container here, probably filled with parts for new crossing signals, so, I made a point of getting out and shooting them before they were gone. Update: they were removed in June 2012.

 

A little bit of elevation was needed to get the camera over the signal box on the left, the shadows do a good job of explaining how that worked...
