Up Highridge Road, an unusual sight for this neighborhood could be seen tucked away from the street - a delapidated building. The photo was taken last December and today when I drove by, I noticed that the building is no longer there.
It belonged to "GTE Corporation (formerly General Telephone & Electronics Corporation) that was the largest of the "independent" US telephone companies (providing local telephone service) during the days of the Bell System." (Ref. Wikipedia). GTE was acquired by Verizon in the late '90s.
