Things will walk away in this town when you ignore them. Sad.

Wow! Great work and sad to see this happening. Ugh. Will someone buy and fix this building up already?

Who's trying to make us Canadian? "Old City Hall, eh"

They took the lettering off of there because they're moving the "Old City Hall" part down a peg so they can put "McMenamins Hotel at" above it.

Ah... one can dream...

Is this how rumors get started?

They are tearing it down. The guy is doing it himself so it's just a couple little pieces at a time.

If only they had started with the T, then the a, it could have been an guerrilla art statement on urban decay and historic building mismanagement...

Someone put earphones on the building and play tunes of her era to wake her up! www.youtube.com/watch?v=fyZQf0p73QM
