Like prehistoric monsters, excavators have been eating away at the old Atlantic Wire plant. Bill O’Brien has been documenting the process, which should be completed soon.
The factory once dominated Meadow Street. Now, only a small section remains.
Here’s a longer view of Meadow Street.
The company signage could be seen from the back lot, but now only a small portion is visible.
Excavator takes a bite out of the roof, which hangs over the side…

Doug Talmadge of Cherry Hill Construction is one of the three heavy equipment operators on site. Cherry Hill is handling the demolition.
The gutted interior is inspected periodically for any problems.
The debris is hosed down constantly to keep down the dust.
All over hosing.
One can only imagine how that chair got to the top of the roof, but the view is probably great. (See top photo)
