A few weeks before this picture was taken (5 December 2004) this site of the Old Conventer Center had not yet begun demolition. This picture was taken on New Years eve, 31 December 2004, days after the demolition process had begun.
When taking this picture I would reflect on the fact that the old conventer center had open less than 20 years before when it was then brand new. I know this to be true because when it first opened in the spring 1985 I would work there in the accounting office. What I thought was interesting was that in less than 20 years a new convention center had been constructed. And that the old one was in the process of demolition.
