Where's Richard Nickel when we need him?

If you love architecture, cities, and above all, terra cotta, these images from Robert Powers' Chicago Sojourn blog are heartbreaking. They're from what remained of a building on the South Side that collapsed earlier this year. I wrote about the building in a previous post.

Were Richard Nickel alive, he'd probably be out there risking life and limb to save pieces of that ornament now residing in a landfill.
