Our town was fortunate to have a major factory employing hundreds (if not thousands) of workers for almost a century. I've known quite a few of these workers, including my father-in-law and neighbour, who were longtime employees.

Downturns and buyouts over the years finally took their toll, and this spring saw the demolition of this monumental building. Above is just a corner of the building, which met the jaws of the demolition equipment first.

This is my entry for Challenge 88
