801 Ouellette Demolition Continues

Demoliton continues full force on the old Joker’s complex.

The Mother’s Pizza side is completely smacked down now…

Compare the photo above to last Thursday…

Without the glass block windows on the upper level, the building looks like a toothless hobo.

It’s a shame, with those chrome awnings and holes for neon tubes, I bet this buidling was quite a stunner in the middle of the last century.

A few sections of glass block remain still on the Elliott St. side.

A view from the Pelissier St. side. The Mother’s building is down to a few courses of brick.

The same view this past Saturday afternoon.
