Filene's

Facade of the Filene's Department Store. Only the facade remains. Behind this wall is a huge hole. In 2007-2008, the building was demolished to make way for a office and condominium complex. Then the stock market crashed and the developer could no longer afford to continue the project.

All show and no substance. It's a wonderful shot, I like such decorations.

Only the facade hey .. plenty of scope for financial analogies.

Beautiful details, but the sad story of the building.

That seems so odd to have gutted the building and left the face. The clock seems like an appropriate detail. Distressing facts, great photo.
