Brantford demolition continues

below: further to my previous post, the demolition along Colborne St., as of July 26, 2010, has now reached 91-93 Colborne St., which is the building seen still standing at the right (lastly the International Hair Salon). It was built in 1865 and first occupied by grocer Thomas Brooks.
At the far right, where the vacant space now is, was where 87-89 Colborne St. had stood (lastly My Thai restaurant); it was built in 1915 and was demolished late last week.

above: July 26, 2010, looking up at the demolition site from Water St., 91-93 Colborne St. is the dark brick building, still standing, to the right. Just to its left is some remnants of the multi-level rear of 87-89 Colborne St. (the former My Thai building). The bottom level of that building was where some of the green-painted block wall can be seen at the bottom right. For an earlier view of this same area, see here.
