The walls come tumbling. . .

This week, demolition of the "dye house" is under way. The bridgeway is often lined with on-lookers mesmerized by the massive machine that is busy bringing down the derelict building. Like some foraging prehistoric beast, the wrecker's claw expertly separates steel beam, pipe, aluminum sheeting and other debris before loading piles onto the huge trucks.

Other buildings on the site set for demolition have been cleared out in preparation. Already the area looks better!
