I am not opposed to change — it is nearly the only thing of which we can be certain in life. What I oppose is wanton destruction in the name of the almighty dollar. My hope is that by sharing these photographs of buildings that I love, this small but important piece of history will live on, despite the blindly onrushing forces of our time.
