Downtown Tucson: An Urban Perspectiveby Jim Gressinger on Oct. 21, 2012, under Day/Weekend Adventures, Downtown Tucson, Southern Arizona History & Culture
Yesterday, I took Zippy, my 3-wheel electric scooter, downtown to photograph that urban environment. Mostly, I took pictures of modern structures. Click HERE to view them. Early Saturdays & Sundays, downtown is generally serene. Aside from a few sleepy homeless people, I only met a few joggers and dog-walkers.
Next week, I intend to begin photographing some of the more historical buildings along the Presidio Trail, a walking tour of historic downtown Tucson. You can view and download the map by clicking HERE.
Perhaps you’d like to join me. Every time I do something like this I learns something new and interesting about my hometown. For example, a guard at the old Pima County Courthouse told me that after the Dillinger gang was arrested by Tucson police in 1934, they were arraigned here. Bet you didn’t know that.
Heading east now for wine tasting in the park by the railroad tracks in Old Town Willcox. Still trying to find a Southern Arizona wine I can recommend. It’s a hard job, but someone gotta do it.
