Before their Demise

They probably were the pride of their neighbourhood, not that you could see them from Great North Road, though. But now the view is opened up, and there they stand, uniformly disemboweled, with mirror symmetry. I saw a truck driving out, laden with window frames, and what appeared to be doors of built-in cabinetry. That was mid-week. When I drove by on Saturday, only small heaps of rubble were left.

Part of the major construction works for the tunneling of State Highway 20.
