Old City street, Quebec

This was taken during a visit to Quebec City last fall. I'm always taken by the narrow winding streets of cities that were built long before automobiles became the standard by which the width of roads were determined. Foot and wagon traffice was the norm. I'm also taken by a locality whose existence is measured in centuries, not decades.

The Old City of Quebec is surrounded by a sprawling metroplex with multi-lane roads. I appreciate this small pocket of history.
