Walking around looking for a lunch spot, we saw these men working on a renovation. It looks like the building had been gutted, but the exterior seemed sound.

Welcome to all. I began blogging Retained-Images in 2004 at It is gone now.

sometimes there are beautiful buildings intact from the outside but the interior slowly rots
Here your image (which in my opinion is not a tribute) shows the difficulty of the work of these men that we must respect

Often done here, where only the facade is retained in order to fit a lot more in behind it

A beautiful facade that looks structurally sound! Nice fenestration patterns as well. The workers stand out nicely in the sunlight.
