.. gradually

.. gradually
Burlington Coffin Co. is coming down -
Some wood and bricks have been salvaged -
Metal will be sold for scrap -
Check the posts tops on the chain link fence -
Are triangular -
Not seen that before -
Interesting how on the left, a tree and the fence became one -

One fascinating salvage will come out last -
A safe with 6ft doors -
My neighbor showed me a cell phone pic he took -
It is a monster -


Couldn't get the ghost sign to show up -
Went different times of day -- different camera settings -- different angles -
So, the center photo in black, much smaller than the original -

If I can find out when the safe is to be removed, I'll go back -
But, this isn't a happy scene for me -

Update: 6 April 2016, the safe was removed and I missed the event. A couple of workers I spoke with said it was huge, taking several men plus machinery to move. Since I know where it went, there is always the possibility of a photo!

Trudy Tuinstra, Larry Drummond, John Lawrence and 2 other people have particularly liked this photo

Oh, I thought this was going to be restored! Maybe that's something else... How disappointing.

Diane, the link below goes to Oneida Cotton Mills that is being restored:
www.ipernity.com/doc/peggyc/41421808/in/album/584927

The Burlington Coffin Co evidently
1- was not able to be restored
2- current owners didn't want to spend the money on it

Which one? Who knows .. it is very disappointing.

Yes, but to revive my spirits I just drive up the street to Oneida Mills being re-furbished / re-purposed into apartments !
They are putting quality materials into it .... saw lots of electrical lines going in at different points of the property. Feel good at this place :))

Dick, you have lived in Florida too long !
But, if something is going to be destroyed, why not take that sculpture/monstrosity from the shore of Lake Mirror out to the LPD firing range and put it to good use !

That the owners are tearing this down -- with nothing -- no plans for use of the area -- not exactly looking forward to progress ....

Know the company who owns it -- have vowed not to purchase 1 thing they make ! Won't hurt them, but I'll feel better !
