In Topic: Implosion of the Worth Hotel - Oct. 29, 1972

Today, 09:57 AM

I will agree that it was a good article, and it was nice to see some of the historic photographs of the implosion.  This goes to show you how much I don't remember from 50 years ago when I was 15 years old:  I do remember that the theater portion of the building was demolished ahead of the hotel, so that the hotel could fall into the part of the site where the theater was located.  What I found out through the Star-Telegram archives, is the theater was actually imploded, as well.  I thought it was demolished by conventional means, but my memory was not serving me well.

This article from the Star-Telegram is also linked in at least one more thread on the forum.

It will be required to go before the HCLC if there are any changes to the exterior of the building.  If they are only paving parking lots and doing landscaping, then the answer is no.

It sounds like you had a nice evening.  I have run into Tim Love a couple of times at the Woodshed.
