Demolition began May 29 on North Side Bait and Tackle, 2624 Sherman Blvd., Fort Wayne.
North Side was in the way of a roundabout going into Five Points, the area where Lillian Avenue feeds into the intersection of Goshen Avenue and Sherman Boulevard on the city’s northwest side.
A giant mechanical claw had smashed into the side wall where a mural was. Owner Mike Reuille vacated in December.
According to ARCH, the brick Tudor-Revival style building was once the Earl Knight Filling Station and dates to about 1926.
