Great shot.

I know somewhere in my family is a pic of the Studebaker plant my grandfather worked at. For some reason this reminds me of that.

yeah, i know what you mean. it does have that old automotive feel. and like studebaker it's gone--although they moved to the mountain instead of closing down.
thanks for the comment--glad you keep coming back!

Always happy to see views of my city. I'm not that far away but I don't get to hang out there any more.

Do you know whether HMP was the original occupant of the building? Are there any plans for a new occupant?

Cheers!

HMP was the original occupant of the building, I believe they started up around the early '50's. There is a plan to turn this building and the former showroom into condos. It's prime real estate, so it will probably happen.

Much better turned into condos than knocked down and developed into a big, ugly condo building. Good to hear.
