The obnoxious starting gates still intact

The demise of the building started much earlier.  The factory was idle and the front office building was sold to Mt. Carmel Hospital across the street.  Little shopping strips and fast food places were built in the front parking lots.  This photo of a Sonic Drive-in was taken in October of 2009.

Western Electric -> AT&T -> Lucent Factory Demolition

I had a blast photoing the current state of the factory tear-down, October 27, 2013.  It might be even more fun to photo the tear down of the front office building where I worked for AT&T for 18 years.
