STORE DROPS SEVERAL FEET, BUT BUSINESS CONTINUES (Mar, 1924)
STORE DROPS SEVERAL FEET, BUT BUSINESS CONTINUES
Defects in the shoring under the foundation of a concrete grocery store caused the structure to settle several feet to a steep angle while it was being moved recently. By rigging improvised steps, the proprietor was able to conduct “business as usual” until the building was righted. Because of the rigid construction and comparatively light weight of the store, it was damaged only slightly by the accident, even the large window panes withstanding the shock.
