Libbey Bowl Slide Show-July 11-15, 2010

Thought you might like to see a slide show of the bowl activity from July 11 thru July 15.  Patience is a virtue as the show loads into your browser…especially if you pick the hi rez version.

Libbey Bowl-A Work in Progress

Thanks to many of you, the construction of the new Libbey Bowl is underway.  But before we forget, here’s the old bowl…

Sweetie and I have volunteered to chronicle the building of the new bowl.  We spent $14 on two hard hats at Ace, so we plan to get our money’s worth.

We’ll be taking photos at various stages of its construction and plan to periodically post them so you can keep up with the project.  For those of you who may need to get close up and personal, we will occasionally put hard copies of some of the photos in Rains Department store windows.  You may have already seen the above photo (the Bowl, not Sweetie) as you strolled by the store.

McGillivray Construction began their work on July 11.  On July 15 we took a 360 degree panorama of the site.  If you click on the photo shown below, you will be taken to the Photosynth website.  You may be prompted to install a Microsoft utility application (Silverlight) in order to view the pano in all its gloriousness.  That done, use your mouse and scroll around as though you were standing in the middle of the construction zone.  We know it looks like the London Blitz.  But we expect that things will improve shortly.

We’ll keep you posted!
