NS - Monroe Street Underpass
Posted September 16, 2020, by George A Oakley (georgeoakley49 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

I live in Reading and have been through this underpass numerous times going to Stonecliff Park.I never noticed the holes in the stones on the arch.If you look at the underpass on street view it is noticeable.
