NewsPhoto Du JourWindsor

Checking in at the Foundry…

Regular reader, and Ford correspondent Darren, has been sending regular photos of the Foundry demolition along. Here are some photo he has sent me over the last month.

July 2nd, Darren heard a giant crash, and looked outside only to be greeted with a brown cloud.

A big hunk of something was brought down…

July 9th, as you can see they are quickly erasing the foundry…

July 9th, from a different angle.

Thanks as always Darren!



In case some of my readers are interested, head on down to Lakeview Marina for a free visit to Peche Island. If you don’t have regular access to a boat this is a good chance to visit the island.
