Another One Bites The Dust… [Updated]

Sad to say, that tonight I passed the intersection of Ouellette & Erie, and noticed a pile of rubble where this beauty once stood. The photo above was taken back in 2002, and the building was in much better shape.

The photo above shows the house as it looked last week (on the 27th *edit* the 21st – two weeks ago).

For some reason another one bites the dust, and more of out past is lost as the core continues to hollow out.

I’ll scoot by later this morning and update the post with a current shot.

While the building was certainly looking a little worse for wear there is no need for it to come down.

969-975 Ouellette Ave. Lost for good.
