Top Ten: Collapse
I took this photo the next day.
In its later years, there was a Chinese restaurant here. Before that, it was the Dickson A/G market, a place where I purchased many a junior high lunch time submarine sandwich.
It wasn't just a building that collapsed. It was history that collapsed, some of it in the form of memories, a can of cold soda, and a plastic wrapped sandwich-- a short walk to and from a deteriorating junior high school with a joke of a cafeteria. It wasn't just lunch. It was an escape.
Whispers and rumors say the Chinese restaurant owners will re-build. Makes sense. It's a big lot on a high volume corner. As 2014 ends, it's just an empty lot.
