Freelance photojournalist Steven Sohlstrom captured the last moments of a downtown St. Cloud landmark today.  According to Sohlstrom:

I saw a crane poking into the sky today and I feared for one of my favorite neighborhood landmarks….the railroad light tower at 9th Ave behind the post office…sadly, my fears were confirmed….you just don’t see many iron frame artifacts remaining, but I was able to record it’s final moments at least as it was cut and lifted from it’s foundation and lowered to the ground.

Here’s his video.  For more from Steven Sohlstrom, check out his website, FlightFlash.com.
