So found this on arch daily this morning and thought maybe this might lead to a good discussion about a possible future of the sea wall? It certainly is dominated by car traffic and I don't know when was the last time the seawall saw any significant infrastructure improvements. I don't know. Anyway just thought this was cool project in Mexico that could be reapplied not just in galveston but other places as well. http://www.archdaily.com/526748/malecon-puerto-vallarta-trama-arquitectos/
Today's news report that the beach along the west Seawall will be restored made me think about this photo in my archive collection High resolution image This image was dated 1962 but that is not necessarily correct. The seawall dead-ended onto the beach. It looks like there was a heavy coating of seaweed at the time of the photo, similar to the huge coverage last year, some of which is shown in these photos further east near Sabine that I posted online.
