Ode to Morris Avenue

Morris Avenue, due to its close proximity to the rail lines that run through the middle of Birmingham, became one of the Magic City's earliest commercial and warehouse districts.

Morris Avenue contains Birmingham's last cobblestone street, which seems nice for nostalgic purposes, but isn't terribly pleasant to traverse.

In more recent years, the buildings along Morris Avenue have been restored and converted into lofts, offices, and storefronts. It is also a hotspot, on any nice weekend day, for engagement pictures.
