Pavement Identity: Alexandria is characterized by several alleys retaining historic pavement and almost all with a central gutter, a feature more prominent here than in any other U.S. city studied by the site author.  The city is the only one found to possess what appear to be curbs made of schist. 

While the goal of this website is to be as comprehensive as possible, if you know of any historic pavement in Alexandria not indicated below, please contact site developer Robin Williams at rwilliam@scad.edu.
