all who wander are not lost

This is for LeoQueen who requested a shot of the MEDUSA CEMENT red letters. This is shot just days before the letters came down for the complex to be demolished.

I was able to creep around a bit, but was unable to locate any remains of the famous red MEDUSA letters – I think they were removed to another location.

  • Greast shots. I used to work at the RenCen and the Medusa Letters gave the plant some character. I wonder if they are in a warehouse somewhere. Perhaps they’re on eBay!

  • Thanks for the images of the Medusa letters! I have a photo somewhere that I took last summer while my daughter and I were riding our bikes in the park by the silos. It was beautiful out, bright and sunny, and the Medusa silos with their red letters were so glittering and monumental! I will miss them, just as I miss the big red GENERAL MOTORS letters on the Grand Boulevard complex.
