BN 2535-2530
Title:  BN 2535-2530
Description:  Kind of a historical shot in a way. I shot it from the southbound Coast Starlight going through Tacoma. The Albers Bros Mill in Tacoma is a landmark. FF to 2012, and this building has been change into a modern condo basically without disturbing its outward appearance...much. Think this scrubby looking rail yard is gone with all the new development too.
