there goes the neighborhood

so they finished wrecking the old firestone service station (1937) at p'tree and 11th---the b/w image was taken in march 1953, lane bros. coll. at gsu----the orange gash across the color image at left is the cleared site today---as a piece of architecture, the building had gotten pretty well boogered up, especially after visions remodeled it a few years ago---but it's one more piece of the old business district from between the world wars that is gone---not a lot left anymore---another 30 or 40 stories of condos going up there---it will block my glimpse of 1180 peachtree entirely---
