After a stop at the Lorain Public Library yesterday, I swung by the old Lorain High School to see how the demolition was coming along. I wasn't the only one there with a camera in hand, and one guy was even lugging away a pretty good size chunk of a brick wall – which was going to make a dandy doorstop.
Anyway, I dug out my old LHS postcard (top) as well as a photo of the same view from around 2007 (middle) and finally a shot from Sunday (bottom).
I like the surgical strike method of demolition that is being employed here. Anyone who hated the modern addition to the building (seen in the middle photo) got to see what the whole scene looked like without it.
So sad to lose these historical structures. My great great grandfather Burgett built this school along with many other schools and houses in the city of Lorain. They don't build them like that anymore.
