The building left of the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament is resp. was the School of Music.

Buildings that seem to be possible to save are being demolished. It is a sobering sight, losing all these irreplaceable heritage sites.

Shipping containers and straw bails in between keep the walls from tumbling down.

The copper tiles have been taken off first.

Looks like a still life of an interrupted afternoon tea.

Deconstruction workers operate from such platforms dangling from a crane.
