That site looks like some of the bad house fires I've been on. Did OSM burn the top structure or is that the reason they got involved.


The 70's / 80's

There would have been less oversite from the Alphabet People. More sites. Maybe a bit less concern about legal issue from private owners.

But with so many site I suspect that it would have been harder to muster support . Sites have to start becoming rare to spark public concern. When they are all over what is loosing a couple.
