Wright Leather sign comes down

The Wright Specialty Leather Co. sign — on large tiles and masonry on the building at 8300 Manchester Road currently under demolition — have come down as well.

The sign had remained above the front door. It was the last of the building to be knocked down. Saturday morning it was in a pile of rubble.

A man operating an excavator asked the 40 South editor if he was there to claim the sign, and indicated that he didn’t know what the plan was for the sign.

The sign and door was the last part of the building to remain standing.

  1. What in the world just happened? I previously read the Wright family was going to claim the sign. Now we see it laying in a heap of rubble. Ed, this is a shame and what can you do about it? Such a disappointment!
