Following Up on Mirro's Demise and Demolition (Part 1)

Downtown Manitowoc's landmark Mirro building being torn down. (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, 3/6/2014)

Not to mention a reminder of a source of good-paying jobs.  Many residents are happy to see the abandoned Mirro manufacturing plant come down because it was a reminder of jobs lost overseas. The 900,000-square-foot former cookware plant once provided employment for thousands before Newell-Rubbermaid moved production to Mexico.

On the south, west, and north sides of the building, demolition has been limited to window frame removal.

I left my camera at home this weekend and was thus reduced to taking photos with my iPad.

(Let's pause a moment so I can mentally beat up on myself again.)
