Demolition...

 Walls tumbling, dust flying, earth shaking and noise levels increasing.
This is a recording studio's worst nightmare. 
Yet this is exactly what's happening to the building next door to ours


So armed with camera (and a cup of tea)
 I ventured outside to have a peek
at ... "progress"


Old tin pressed ceilings, retro wallpaper, Victorian height ceilings...


... revealed when big burly dudes come a crashing and a bashing...


... peeling back layers of "office partitioning"....


... she really is a beauty


Although I was told she will be no more by the end of today


Recently the police stormed her to discover a meth lab
bubbling away....


I don't know why I think that's kind of cool?
Not the drugs aspect ....



.... but rather the rebellion that she housed ...



... as though she knew what the future held


I would have loved to enter the site for a better
poke around...


... but you can imagine what big burly workmen think
of a lady, tea in hand, wandering around taking photos....


.... of a building that has to be destroyed....


.... to make way for ...



... something new


I'm glad I had my tea break outside today

I, too, would have loved to have a peek around that place before they knocked it down - the layers of history! If walls could talk, eh?
