The photo at the left shows the main or second floor where the fountain was located, under the staircase leading to the third floor. Crews have cleared the fourth and third floors. Removal of walls and ceilings on the first floor is nearly complete.
My sister has accused me of being a literary snob. I suppose that may be true, but as a librarian, I know that every reader has her book, and every book its reader (to paraphrase S.R. Ranganathan). I have always assumed that I don’t like romance novels, just as I’ve assumed I don’t like science fiction, horror, action/adventure, and many other genres. But that’s like saying you don’t like Brussels sprouts without having ever tried them. (I love them, in case you’re wondering.)
