Here's some pictures I took Saturday and Sunday for Murillo move. I took pics about the people covering the story: the local TV station, the National Geographic/ Discovery Channel film crew; the watchers. Now that I've posted these pics, like old buildings, it's time to move on (to other things)
Moving up High Street
Who's that guy being interviewed? LOL. Camera and producer from National Geographic/ Discovery Channel.
This is a boy working. His height gives you an idea of the scale of this equipment.
The Yellow box controls all the hydraulics and motors for all 192 wheels.
Mid American crew putting things back together in the wake of the move. Off camera there is a guy up on the pole fixing the street light.
This guy's job was to kick 4x4 blocks of wood on the backside of the wheels so the whole thing didn't roll backwards while traveling up the street. The wheels and building moved about 2 to 3 feet per minute.
National Geographic camera - getting the ant's point of view of the approaching wheels.
Trimmimg branches; gathering the news.
Next day, Sunday morning 9am. Look at the crowd! There were lots more lookers standing up the other street.
Getting ready to go into the new hole dug just the day before. It took EIGHT HOURS to get it from the spot in this picture to it's final resting place in the hole. Lots of mud.
