I stopped by The Record site yesterday to see if the front was down (it wasn't) and took a few shots.

1. You can see how close they are to the front by looking through the first-floor windows.

2,3,4. From the NW corner of the property

5. The view from the south showing the proximity to River St.

6,7. Metal work in the back


Given how close they were to the front, I thought it might come down today. Rainy days are good for that because it keeps the dust down, but as of 2pm today - no change.

The Record building demolition is complete

The front part of The Record building finally came down today. I wasn't there, so if somebody else was, please post the pix. I found out when I drove by this afternoon, got out and took a few shots, but it's kind of empty and certainly anti-climactic to be shooting nothing, so here's a pair of before and after images.

Two trees appear to define the space where the front was and the heavy machinery seemed to enjoy playing with the remains. The stitch is head-on to where the front was. I think the best shot is the one from the side with the sun reflecting because the other local buildings are now unblocked.

Actually, EVERYTHING with The Record name on it isn't down yet as you can see in the last picture.

I drove by there on sunday and saw a 150 sign still up too. I hope someone saves that little booth there somehow. Just seeing that logo reminds me of delivering the paper in 1978-79

As of Christmas Day 2018, here's what's there. There's probably not much reason to go by there anytime soon (unless someone wants to rescue the 150 sign).   ;)
