99 Bottles Of Beer On The, Umm...Bridge?

I spotted this odd collection under the Walnut Lane overpass on Lincoln Drive, and it just seemed out of place:

The lower section of Lincoln Drive was closed to traffic today so the Streets Dept could remove some problem trees, clean storm drains and such. This made for a much more leisurely walk than I expected in that section. Lincoln Drive is an old-style narrow highway that winds through the woods of Fairmount Park. It's signed 25 MPH but that's a good joke -- it normally carries a lot of traffic that flows at more like 45 MPH. On any other day it would have been impossible to take this pic without any cars visible, and at least one of them probably would have been honking at me.
