In this case, the thing being demolished was the auto entrance to the Hotel Breakers (shown above in a vintage postcard). It had been built in 1905 and was the first thing that hotel guests saw when they arrived by auto and entered the hotel.
The auto entrance met with the wrecking crew last Wednesday. It will be replaced with a more grand entrance – what else?
Here's another view of it from a vintage brochure in my collection (below).
First, here's the photo from the Sandusky Register (click here for their story and some sad video).

But sadly, one more piece of the "old" Cedar Point bites the dust.
