As I parked my car on 32nd Street to walk down to the school, I looked over my shoulder and
saw Hanna's standing there so isolated and lonely. It seemed to be wondering where all its old and dear friends had gone ... how a once thriving and bustling downtown had metamorphosed into cold, soulless parking lots ... like many old people wondering why it had been spared when so many had been taken.  Suddenly I felt the need to capture the image before it, too, was taken.
Bad News!!! 

The building I imaged 
(at 3301 Washington Avenue).... and believe is Hanna's ..... is being demolished. 

I saw it today, as I was headed south on Huntington Avenue. 
I am so glad I took that shot when I did.
