Warbler, Your over the top with this one. Interesting and great.
Next time I move, I'm calling Edwards Moving and Rigging.
It is a biggie, Floyd and I've seen even bigger. Amazing stuff! They know more than we do, Shirley, TO be able to do this is amazing to me. Some of the upper windows are open and some are closed like that doesn't matter.They do implode them here too, Maureen, so it must be important to save some of them. I'm glad they do save them, thought!! Thanks
Unbelievable! Great picture warbler! Thanks.Here they just implode old buildings!
My house came in two pieces on separate trucks, but it was nothing compared to this, you would expect the bricks to crack when they jacked it up, marvellous how they can move buildings. Thanks., Dave.
Wow. that's a BIG building to move. They must have a powerful engine in front to move all that weight. I'm thinking maybe a caterpillar or two. They have moved grain elevators in our country but this would be heavier.Thanks Dave.
I can't imagine how they do this, Cathy, its amazing!
Great picture!! Thank you Dave. I saw a house being moved once but this would draw a crowd!!!
Nobody will ever think of looking there, Pumpkin!
A feat of engineering....and all for warbler's st-----
Money is pretty much the limiting factor, Mariolyn, it seems!We gotta keep thinking big, big, big, Florrie. ;-)))I would have loved to see it myself, Aaronsdad!!Most of what I found was from the 1990's Beekay. A little bit earlier.I'm blown away, Barb, for sure!Its too big for me after all, Putter! :-))Thanks Patti!Wait till you see the church move I found, Lorna!!Totally amazing, ladywil!I'm glad they do, Laura, because me either. The closer I look at the actual detail of doing it, the more I get boggled.Yep, Lyndee, it does! Look below at my reply to Lorna...The big question, SandyA historical building, smllpkg, ....shoot I don't know--it is a mystery. Then I wonder how many get knocked down into a pile and hauled to the landfill.
Again, I'm wondering what made the building worth this expense? It's still very solid looking and I like the Art Deco kind of style, but there are probably thousands of factories, and even schools, around the country very similar to this one. A mystery!
Wow! How is that possible?
Seems almost impossible doesn't it???
I have no idea....
This is amazing that they can do that.
Aaronsdad, I love your avatar! Been meaning to say that for a while.Warbs...it's kinda big for a st*ll, isn't it? Since you like explosions, all those windows could be a problem!
Truly unbelievable picture, Dave...........WOW!
Do you have any idea when the photo was taken?
Wish I was able to be in the right place to set and watch a building like this being moved, this puzzle is just plain awesome Warbler Thanks
From the sublime . . . . . . .
Amazing what can be done these days...
