The following pictures were taken by Ned Fuller '65 on January 27, 2014. Ned provides the following disclaimer:

Warning: these images may be disturbing to alumni and former staff. Viewer discretion is advised.

Chesterfield Rd. side, viewed from across the upper practice field. Note new buildings in the background, beyond the tennis courts Classrooms behind where the auditorium used to be.
The iconic Dinwiddie St. main entrance. Note green double doors that led to the cafeteria. Sic transit gloria (that there is Latin - thank you, Mrs. Fenton, wherever you are.):  Classrooms on the Dinwiddie St. side.
Here's the new main building; it's where the student parking lot used to be.

The demolition of the building is almost done - only a few rooms are left, and they will be gone soon. The following pictures show what little is left.

The demolition of the building is complete - nothing is left but our mememories..

Looking at what was the Chesterfield Street side of the building. Looking at the back where the gyms and shops were.
Looking at where the Auditorium used to be. looking at what used to be the cafeteria entrance.
Looking at where the entrance to the large gym was. Looking at the back of the building from the new parking lot.
Only a small part of a wall exists - and it will be gone soon. The project began with large piles of dirt - and it seems that it will end that way..
