Squint Shot 012211

Once the horizontal planks were removed from the structure (see yesterday's squint shots), this pillar at the east end of the building became more visible. In doing some wondering with the dpw workers, it was presupposed this pillar might have been part of a support for a ramp into a building that may have existed in this area at one time. At various times, there were other buildings where the public parking lot now exists behind the storefronts of the northeast quadrant. As more planks were removed, the following two pictures show a bolt that was secured in this massive piece of concrete. It would be wonderful if anyone out there has any thoughts or information on what this may have been used for.
