ABOUT the ADDENDUM
The Addendum is an occasional blog about cities, culture, books, writing, photography, and painting. Here is where I post my thoughts and reflections, updates about projects I am working on, and other original content.
The blog takes its name from small publications that were inserted into books with corrections, additions, and expansions, allowing a book to be updated without reprinting; The Addendum serves much the same function for this site.
PUBLICATION: The Modern Streetcar: Transit or Time Machine?Fall 2013 It seems like every U.S. city has a modern streetcar project in the works. Are these meaningful additions to the transit landscape, or merely amusement rides for nostalgic tourists? The National Railway Historical Society gave an entire issue of the Bulletin to examine these issues.
