I can not believe this has been demolished, or that plans are in place to demolish this building, I used to work in this building and it seemed fine, why are so many buildings being demolished when I thought this should be a time for saving money ? all we seem to do is demolish the old when surely making such structures fit for purpose would cost less ? I have read a running commentary on the demolition and how its going on a news site for demolition contractors on www.southdemolition.co.uk these demolition contractors show you tube videos of how the work is being undertaken and how the demolition will be a green demolition for recycling of demolition waste, in that respect there is some form of putting back into the local environment and they seem to being doing a fast job of it !

Oh yeah, that Old Excide battery Factory was beautiful. Fine example of early Factory architecture. I could have sat and stared at that place for hours and never wondered.
Would have really liked to have bought me some property across the street there on Hoke Ave. But, now it's coming down, and my heart is saddened. Just like the old Power Plant, that always reminded me of "Pink Floyd's" album cover "Animals."
Yes, Frankfort has lost some treasures for sure!
