DetroitPhoto Du Jour

Slumptastic

Back north of the border for today’s photo.

Well, it’s sad to say, but I think time’s about up for old Slumpy.

When both layers of bricks peel off, and the structural interior framing starts to give way, it’s just a matter of time.

Compared to last March, the last 11 months, have not been good.

Way back in August 2002, it still even looked salvagable. Hard to believe that that much damage can occur in 42 months.

A far cry from house the house looked orignally.
