Lyons Iron Works



This is what the old Filene's building looks like these days (Here's an older photo of the same side of the building). I love how the iron workers always find a way to label the buildings they are working on - click to enlarge so you can see the "signature" here. Demo is kind of like an archaeological dig - you wouldn't find things like this if you weren't tearing down the walls, right??

LOL! I was gonna take the same photo the other day!

Too funny! I've actually stopped and taken photos about three different days - at different stages of demo and with different cameras - and it wasn't until I noticed the "signature" from the iron workers that I really liked the end result enough to post.

Very cool. What's going in its place, do you know?

George: not sure what's going in it's place - they have signage that says it's retail/residential/office space, but not much more info than that. i heard a rumor back when Filene's was still barely open that Target might go in there - which would be totally awesome, if you ask me!

who doesn't love shopping at Target? My boyfriend swears that the air inside a Target store is cleaner and fresher than the air outside.
