A parking lot on the city's main street is a sad fate.

Understandably, there are few work-place photographs on the photo-blogs. I wish there could be more.

In the other hand, construction means people having job ( work to do and salary), and it's important in these days with economic problems. Well...at least!

Sad to see it go if only they will build something appealing in its place.

That' life and progress for you, it does seem a shame, but you have so many really old and beautiful buildings that will never be knocked down VP. Nice 'men at work' image.

Reduced to a pile of rubble--always a sad scene. But yes, it does look better and safer than before. May the site enjoy new life.
Glad you were there to document the history.
