The boarded-up door to a (missing) fire escape, on the former St. Ann High School.

Efforts are being made to either recuperate this beautiful old building for a good purpose, or to remove it and dedicate the property to something new.  Turns out there are legal issues to work out.  I hope it is saved before it is too late.  The granite and brick work are beautiful, even in decay.
