Demolition of the Chrysler Plant

A look back at the demolition of the Chrysler Plant in Fenton.

Since the Chrysler Water Tower was demolished recently, I thought that I would revisit some photos of the demolition of the plant the I took over the last year.

Thanks for adding your pictures of the 2 billion dollar State of the Art Chrysler complex tear down. That is the crime of the century.

Great photo's of an era, when their were jobs had by all, such a shame to see this come down. Yet what were they going to do with it?, the scrape metal is worth a lot of $$$$$$$$, where did those jobs go? where does the metal go? scupture? art? roller derby rink? school? Thanks for shraing these photo's z

Well let's see if this thing works now. What I tried to say is that you have a real eye for finding beauty in destruction. Your series from Bush Stadium are beyond compare and that I think you should have them archived with the library of congress. Let's see if this works.

it's hard to see these auto plants being torn down. What a shame. I lost my job when the Ford plant shutdown along with thousands of others. I was sick to my stomach looking at footage of that plant being razed. Alot of good paying jobs gone.

Well both plants r torn down and still no buyer while Chrysler adds on to the truck plant in Mexico because some clueless bozo had the Fenton truck plant torn down that could have been used to build them again and put the 43,000 St Louis tax payers back to work that were impacted by closing.
