Living memory.

Alfreda Gary (right), 67, and her mother, Willie Woodruff, 87, stand near the giant oak tree that serves as the only living reminder of their old Parramore home, which was bulldozed to make way for the East-West Expressway. Since her childhood, Gary has watched the decline of the Parramore she once loved, and she says talk of a ‘new' Parramore just means more of the same: a promise of progress that will most likely lead to a lower quality of life for the people now living there.
