The Last Shots of Rosemirlea

To those who've been following the blog for a while, you may remember my post from the Rosemirlea Apartments fire, back in June.

These were the last photos I took as demolition began on the building (a few months ago, just before winter was setting in).

Luckily for me, demo began on a Friday, otherwise I wouldn't have gotten any photos, since the work was done during my work hours.

At this point, they had torn off all the brick and the rear porch addition.

Original painted placard.

Details of the beautiful entrance and interior staircase. Note the beautiful corbels and transom windows.

Old radiator.

Newel post with simple Craftsman details.

The lot now sits empty, and I miss the building every time I pass by.
