The chimney images are from a series I photographed in June of 2009. These smokestacks were part of the Milwaukee Road railroad repair shops and were referbished to remain as a monument to the valley's industrial heritage.
Since last winter, bricks have been falling off and preservation efforts are being dropped - because of public safety and the long-term maintenance would be substantial.
The smokestacks were demolished at 9AM on Saturday, September 4, 2010. The demolition was known - but the timing was not published.
