Jumpstart January: Task 24 page 2
They're tearing down a really old building in town. I went out there today and documented it. I felt the need to make my pages about it. I had too many pictures to limit it to one page, so I made a two-page spread
the text reads
The lumberyard had been closed for less than a year. It seemed strange to see it that way, as it had always been around as long as I could remember. They tried to get another company to re-open it with no success. The Methodist Church bought the land. They plan to destroy the building and pave it over for a parking lot. A huge corner of Main Street paved over? It seems surreal.
A recent storm knocked over part of the wall and damaged the church, but the demolition was already started on the lumberyard. I have mixed feelings about this I know progress has to be made, but to lose an old building for a parking lot is a little bittersweet. A sign of the times in Small Town, U.S.A.
