Most of you barely notice I’m here. Mistake me for some kind of modern art. Everything else in these parts is modern now, but did you ever wonder what was here before the luxury apartments, the luxury hotels, the sky-rising concrete maze? They called me a lock for a reason you know, and the key to what lay beyond here was toil. You came here by light railway, what understanding could you have of machines powered by coal, steam, or men? It’s important to remember this history, even as the future swells irrepressibly before you, like a great, glittering tide.
