St. Mary’s Demolition – 1977

Today’s entry comes sent in from regular reader Steve L. He found these photos at his Grandmother’s house, and shared them with me to share with all of you:

Interesting to note, model homes already popping up in front prior to the implosion.

Going…

…going…

…gone…

A shot from the front during the implosion.

Steve told me they were in an envelope marked “Windsor Star”. So they were shot by Star photographers, however I’m not sure if they were ever printed in the paper or if they were just photos shot that day. If so, they may be seeing the light of day for the first time here.

A big thank you to Steve for scanning and sending them along. As always if you have any photos hanging around your house, or maybe your parents or grandparents have some, feel free to contact me, I’d be happy to share them.
