Kodak Implodes Building 50

Earlier in the week I took my camera to work to catch a shot of Kodak Building 50 before it was imploded this morning. The picture below was taken from my office window. I annotated it to show the location of the former Building 9 that was imploded on June 30. In the distance is Kodak Office, about four miles south of this site.

Building 50 was built in 1918 and a source for the paper that so many Kodak memories have been printed on the past 89 years. Although I did not go to the "event", my husband and I  heard it from 4.5 miles away. The picture below of the dust cloud created as the 174,000 square foot Building 30 was becoming a memory was taken from the roof of the Research Laboratories. The complex was off limits this weekend to all but essential personnel and, obviously, the press.
