The upper stories are residential and the lower are retail. The shop with the lights on has been vacant for years as has space to the right in the photo. One of my favorite historic buildings on West 7th street in St. Paul.
I spent most of last Friday in Winona Minnesota helping a college professor find temporary housing. I love Winona. I went to school there for a year. The downtown area has so many lovely antique buildings. I just had to stop and look up.
This is my favorite of my destruction photos and it concludes my five part series on demolition. These pictures can never be taken again and that is probably OK.
The reason this is taking so long to demolish is because of the way it was built. Built to last.
Destruction can be colorful with all of the bricks and wires. This building was build to last.
Taken in Winona Minnesota. This church is beautiful from any angle. It was built by Polish immigrants in 1871 and completed in 1872.
