The Oyster Sidewalk

When I visited Savannah, Georgia USA in August 2017, found this interesting oyster concrete sidewalk. This sidewalk was at the corner of 300 Habersham St. and 321 E Liberty St. According to a 2017 report on historic pavement in Savannah Georgia, some sections of the city have "1950s Concrete with oyster shell aggregate". This sidewalk might be one of these sections.

I don't think these shells are fossils though maybe one day they will be. This concrete is an interesting way to use shells though and thought it might be worth noting.
