And what a pity it's gone now.

That mezzanine open patio looks very inviting.

Double Implosion

I watched the implosion of the Marion Hotel and also the 14 story Grady Manning Hotel as they went off simultaneously. The hotels were on the same block and now the Peabody Hotel and Statehouse Convention Center occupy that space.

Three observations

1. The life of this building was about the same as that expected of a human being, approximately three score and ten.

2. "Miss Jones, next time you contact our supplier, please order another 144 pairs of identical curtains."

3. Be our transitory window display simply by occupying a chair in the window and be looked at for as long or short a time as you wish.

This One Didn't Catch On Fire Either

It was imploded in 1980.
