It finally happened, they tore down the last wall of the building where the Daisy Air Guns were made. I guess this is the time of year for it, soon the our TV’s will all be showing “A Christmas Story”, the movie that let generation know what a Red Ryder BB Gun was.
They’ve been trying to tear it down since ’08, I blogged about it here.
And now that it has deteriorated for another six years there was, of course, no saving it.
You can see the demolition on the Patch website here.
It certainly had turned into an eyesore over the years, but it bothers me that promises were made, and history suffers. Goodbye, Daisy.
The problem, of course, is what can you keep in a felt vessel with a narrow opening. The only thing I’ve come up with so far are twigs.
