Laurel Building Knocked Down


We were in Laurel today and I see the Laurel Redevelopment Corp. (LRC) is in the process of demolishing the building on the corner of Market and Central

In looking at the debris you see where the bottom of the building had Formstone or Perma-Stone decorated surface to make it look like cut masonry blocks or faux stone creating the trompe l'oeil appearance of rock.

It has fallen off in big sheets allowing you to see a very study wall behind it that looks to be about three bricks thick.

So even in death this building has added a little more to my knowledge of the building trade.
