“And it won't be around for much longer. A representative for Caltrans, which has owned the property since the mid-1930s, confirmed that the building is scheduled for demolition some time in mid-September.

“For Caltrans, the demolition symbolizes a long-awaited victory. But for a small collection of unruly stakeholders -- homeless, metal scrappers, junkies, graffiti artists, urban explorers, rats, pigeons, and photographers -- it will mean the loss of something they have reclaimed as their own.”

The end of an era. Get over there before it's all gone.
