(If you want to take a shot at guessing the exact day and time the building goes down, click here)
I had a friend's rottweiler along with me, and so I posed the doggy next to the doomed building (DOOOOOMED!!! DOOMED, I SAY!!!) in a kind of "before" shot. Later, when there is a big hole in the ground...
...and lots of new, interesting smells of fresh earth and worms for the Rottweiler, I'll snap an "after shot."
Also shown in these photos: the fire escape at Uncle Bill's, which certainly has some scrap metal value, quite possibly the most valuable part of the whole building. The "weird little pile of dirt" which appeared behind the building, which appears to contain chunks of asphalt. The exact purpose and origin of the dirt and debri is unknown, but my speculation is the stuff was dumped there to use for "fill" when the utilities get dug out of the street. Which (and I think I've already emphasized this?) will happen as part of UNSTOPPABLE AND INEVITABLE DEMOLITION, and guess-the-freaking-hour for eternal blog glory.
