Scotland Yard, 1981
Scotland Yard, circa 1981. Item available on eBay here: 260929101575. Original caption reads: Three old buildings on the south end of Uptown were prime candidates for the wrecker's ball until Bill Thompaon and his firm got busy. It took four years of planning and 16 months of work to convert the decrepit structure into Scotland Yard, a rental complex with 155 units.
