Does anyone else get kinda sad when they have to update a location to say that it's demolished? Maybe it's just me but it's kinda sad. It's like.. this was someone's home/business/livelihood/happy place, and now it's gone. You could drive by and you wouldn't know anything was ever there despite all the happy memories and stuff that happened there.

Yeah.  I'm feeling it a lot more, now that I'm in my late 40s.  A lot of the things and places I remember from my childhood are gone.  They just built a new high school in my town, and the old one that I went to is slated to be torn down.  It kind of bugs me.

Always, and as much as I love exploring abandoned stuff, it's sad to think about a place in its heyday. The Regal Constellation Hotel in Toronto was one that really got to me, I stayed there as a kid and thought it was such an amazing place. Never did I think I'd be wandering through its empty hallways with 2" of ice on the floor. And now it's a field.

It was Bye's Manor Farm that did it for me. It would have been such a beautiful house at one point, but it's gone now too. There were kids toys in the attic, and in the detached bungalow wall paper in the bedrooms was clearly for children. There was foil in the oven too, it was like "someone cooked dinner here for the last time once.. I wonder what it was, and if it turned out."

Kinda a weird thing to think of I guess but I'm kinda glad to see I'm not the only one.

Thorndale Obsession is one that bugs me. I really liked that house and now it's just a field.
