TD Bank Site

Demolition got serious on the TD Bank site last week while I was away on vacation. In my absence I asked my field correspondent John Stefani, to grab his camera and keep an eye on things until I got back.

John did just that, and he managed to snap a few shots of the work taking place at Ouellette and Pitt.

Here is one last look back at the remains of the Manning House Hotel.

When I got back into town, I swung by the site, but in the week I was gone, they were all reduced to rubble.

The workers in the Federal Building now have a nice view of Pitt St. 😉

All gone now. While it’s always sad to lose more of our heritage, this one was beyond fighting for.
