      I have reasons to believe it did in fact go to the dump.  The mashed up mess of timbers, etc. were dumped on the far northern side of the Gloversville landfill, before it was capped off. 

      I assume the story given to me was correct; that the documents went there in the same dump trucks as the rest.  And the days this work was done were generally rainy and dreary; I was not about to dig around in a twisted mass of timbers on private property at the city dump looking for wet, muddy, torn, shredded documents.  Once they were gone, they were gone; it would have been an exercise in futility to try to get them back.

      I am sorry to say that I was unable to preserve the unique trim that was on the top of the building.  I always wanted to put that stuff somewhere.  I believe it was so rotted that it fell apart directly upon demolition.

      Knowing The City Of Gloversville's DPW, I'd say it went to the dump!

      That is true.  What was junk is now a collectible. 

      I have always wondered if the story given to me --- that the material went to the dump --- is inaccurate; perhaps someone else does have the material.  If so it has remained hidden for more than a decade.
