As Time Goes By
This photo was taken October 1922, the Luzon building at the corner of 9th Street and Pacific Avenue in downtown Tacoma. Below is an image I took about a decade ago. In late September the building was razed (history and news) for development. This despite efforts to save the building for renovation and despite being on the historic building registry.
Time changes everything, but there are times you wonder if change is really worth it, and maybe pieces of history are worth saving, if only for just being there, and still being useful. Like buildings.
