A co-worker in my office, Mark P., suggested that I sketch the old Ready Mix Plant just down the street from the office. It had been abandoned for some time and was a rusted hulk from an earlier time. When I drove by, it had been demolished and the site was vacant with the exception of the giant snow piles from this winter. Thankfully for Google Streets, I was able to get a street view photo of the facility before demolition. The photo shows a collection metal forms that had a wonderful rusted patina from years of use and neglect.
