Washburne Trade School Coming Down

I had heard that Washburne was coming down quickly, but I was stunned at the rate of progress. I parked along the street in front, got out and took some photos, wished I had some money for tacos from the stand by me, and then got back on the road.

You can't tell me they couldn't find a use for this building? Damage from the fire, which precipitated the demolition--supposedly--is evident in several photos. Check out my other photos here and here.

When the demolition is complete, this will be the largest building I have ever been inside that has been destroyed.A dubious distinction, indeed.
