watching the buildings come down: 1

It rained the day the front of the Bundy building was ripped  away.
Just a light shower.
Enough for us to stop and acknowledge the passing of this historic building in the heart of London St.

We had watched Stephen Mateer, one of Lyttelton Coffee Company's owners,  dismantling the facade during the week, moving from espresso master to construction worker.
On this day we watched him undo the last of the bracing on the verandah and then step back and let the crane do the rest.

"It feels good. 
It doesn't feel like something's broken now.
It now feels like a building site"
