Parapets Lost

One day looking up while driving the "loop" in Crookston, I was thinking that one day someone must have torn off all the tops of the historic buildings. Not only the tower on the former City Hall, and the dome on the Carnegie Library, but the decorative brick parapets as well!     The first picture shows the former Masonic Hall/Eagle Rexall Drug store.  Note Osman Drug on the left in the second picture.  The third picture shows the building that Schultz Carpet is in on the left.  The fourth picture shows that the Masonic Hall not only had a ledge, but other items on top at one time.

Even the McKinnon Building (Crookston Paint & Glass) than it has today:
