a sad waste

How much more of our history and architecture do we have to lose to careless contractors before the city does something to ensure proper training and licensing and supervision of contractors, especially on landmark buildings?

The loss of the Dexter building in the South Loop 2 weeks ago is just a sad waste. Losing the Harvey house less than 2 weeks later just makes it worse.

The images below are of the Dexter building fire, taken at 9 a.m. on the morning after the fire started.
