Is that really such a horrible loss? I mean, it's old, but it's basically an industrial park. One story. Sprawling. And only mildly architecturally interesting in its heydey.

Thanks AIW. I never realized that was the old Champion factory. It was a nut and bolt factory up until the the early '90s. My friend lived across the street for many years.

Thanks AIW. Nice plant in its heyday, eh.

"10 MPH in yard." When did Canada go metric and what would that same sign read today? You do the conversion. Who knows, jjaba might be renting a backhoe over there.

jjaba, on the westside.

Not that much of a loss for the "modernizing" took care of most of the architecturally interesting detail long ago.

10 MPH in yard would convert to 17 Celsius....ooops, no, that's 13 Kelvin....aw, that's not right, maybe 25 nautical....gee, this slide rule sure got sticky since I put that gum on it...........

Come on Ray1936, you read and delivered the Detroit Times way long ago, you can do the conversion for jjaba.

What does 10 MPH = in kilometers?
Celsius and Kelvin are Old English Royals for crissakes, eh.

When I was in Shropshire, I visited Lord Kelvin's Castle. King Celsius is a Scot believe it or not.

I think you're right, jjaba...I always got my History and Physics classes mixed up.

Off the top of my head, I think 10 miles would roughly equal 7 kilometers. Give or take a few centimeters.

Oooops, my bad. I converted 10 the wrong way. Had a 70 degree day today, worked in the yard, brain cells are tired this evening........

Thx, Jimaz, for the correction.
