Just after sunrise this morning, 6:50am. I posted these on one of my other blogs too. The building on the right is the Umass library, and the building on the left is Thompson.
And then here's something to think about. This building below is slowly being demolished from the inside out. There is asbestos, mercury, and god knows what else in there. It's the original physical plant, located just outside of the campus garage, but I think it's been there longer than the garage. I don't know. Anyway since there is a lot going on, and it seems hard to believe that these chimneys or smokestacks or whatever you call them will soon be part of history. The building in front isn't going anywhere that I know of. It's the building in back that is being taken down. I don't know if you can see it but there is white plastic over the windows. They try to keep the place sealed up as much as they can.
