You feel kind of sad, seeing something this big and formerly so vital and busy, so totally abandoned.

Re-Use Recycle

Who We Were

I look at walls like this and wonder what the house was like that has now been torn down. You can see the divisions of the rooms that were adjacent to this house, and see where the chimneys shared some openings. Who lived there, do you suppose? Why was that house torn down? This remains just an empty lot now. Walking along the sidewalk in the front, you can see one or two stones marking the front walk up to where the door had been.
