Freeway Fault Lines

In the 1940's the first freeways offered easy transporation to and from the city from the suburbs. Although this was a great success, it came with a price. In order to build these freeways several Irish homes and buildings in the Corktown area had to be demolished in order to use the space for these new paths of travel.
