It’s All Gone

Demolition of Colonial Building

It is all gone now. When I passed this building a few days ago, an excavator was in the center of the premise clearing debris of the building. During my last visits I noticed the building fell into deteriorated condition in a much faster pace, but I could not imagine that it is all gone now. I got a chance to get inside the building in 2010 and took some photos. I attempted to enter the buildings again for several times later, but the window entrance was always blocked and the neighboring dog gave me a good bark. It drove me up the wall that we have lost another Phnom Penh’s eye-catching architecture. What is worse is that we all know it will keep repeating again and again on the land of the Kingdom.
