Boarded House, San Gabriel

This vacant and boarded-up house on Walnut Grove Ave. in San Gabriel is nearing demolition. It's one of three houses in a row that face imminent doom because a bulldozer is ready and waiting for action next door. I can't help but feel some sadness when a home is destroyed, especially when it's obvious that children lived here. (Notice the tether ball in the yard.) I wonder what kind of memories were created here, and whether past tenants even care that the home will be gone the next time they drive by to reminisce.
