The old Parade Mall building, a scar on Portsmouth’s landscape from the urban renewal efforts back in the 60s or 70s…is no longer. This shot captures the building in its nearly completely demolished state on June 20, 2009. As of June 30th, the building is completely gone…and will become the new Portwalk redevelopment, which is slated to beautify the northern tier of the city and better tie in the area near the Sheraton to the Vaughan Mall (and further to Congress Street). I loved the blues on the cars and the bike and the hint of it in the sky.
