I just wonder how many cars had to hit that big bird bath before they took it out.

Bird bath or horse trough, probably both but it's gone today.

The small strip center in the foreground is the bottom rear left corner of the large building. The fountain was about where the ellipse is.

The old row of buildings on the left survived.



The streets go downhill to a river crossing about a block away. Neat photo.

Now why would they tear down such a neat old building just to replace it with asphalt? Damaged in a fire, perhaps?

That's what you do ! Some call it "Progress". You rip out the woods, put the creek in
a culvert, pave it up, put in some condos, maybe a prestigious gated community with a
protective home owner's association to see to it no one violates all the vinyl siding and
plastic landscaping rules. It's a Costco/Disneyland life !

Just look at the icky, unsafe world those cretinous urchins lived in back in the day. It's
no wonder they're all dead now !

Looking at the windows & doorway on the first building in the modern pic, it looks like it might be part of the "lost" building. Maybe a fire took it out?

David,

I believe you are correct. They didn't save much of that big old building and scratch one bird bath too.

I guess they tried to use the water in the bird bath to put the fire out, it wasn't enough. Now they have no building and a bunch of thirsty birds.

Burger, I wish you would stop beating around the bush and just say what you mean.

Happy motoring,

Warren

I agree with Ken that it was a horse trough. The towns around where I grew up had them in the center parks. Some had rings attached to them.
