Historic Speed Bumps

Historic Speed Bumps

Captain’s Row is one of the few streets in Alexandria with its original cobblestones. The stones came from Mother England and were ballast on the 16th century ships that sailed here. Although slowing down traffic was not on anyone’s mind when they were first installed, I can tell you from experience you will not drive more than five miles an hour over these things.

    Sounds like a bumpy ride. If you put a cow in the back of a truck and drove fast over the cobble stones do you think it would make a milk shake? =)

    I love the road. And I’m sure it wrecks havoc on our horseless-drawn carriages.

    I prefer low speed and high pleasure!I think Alexandria is a verynice and lovely town.I have met a girl from your town many years ago and she told me about.
    The other reason for me is the city name,Alexandria from Alexander the Great!
