The end of a silo

Lastday_1

In the early dawn, a high reach trackhoe frames a silo marked for demolition

This seventy year old silo had been disintegrating for years and was becoming a risk to nearby buildings. This silo was so old that it used horeshoes and wagon wheel rims for reinforcing. I arranged for its demolition and was able to capture the process in still images and video.

This event made the Floyd Press and is discussed in more detail with pictures and a video clip on the Jacksonville Center website.
