Was there already tracks through downtown before they elevated the tracks or was that when the line was originally built in 1955

Thank you. That filled in a lot of blanks. Wonder if there are photos out there of the tracks before elevation. I also didn't know it was built on the canal. I wonder if there's photos of the canal as well.
