These pictures had me shaking my head in disgust. Either by war or modernization man has destroyed some beautiful architectural wonders. #2 the bridge in Germany was magnificent & now it's ridiculous. I hate modern buildings & homes.

Most of these structures are irreplaceable due to the sheer cost of materials and construction; and we longer have many of the craftsmen and artisans who built these structures. Support your local city historic preservation office and non-profit groups!

Destruction of BUDDHA"s statue is unpardonable.

I don't know what the answer is but the loss of such beauty and history is sad. Maybe the answer to bigger bridges is fewer vehicles. That could cause a food shortage. Our ancestors grew and processed there own food. Children grew up working to help feed the family. No time to join gangs and vandalism. Maybe all these modern conveniences are not only destroying beautiful bits of history but little by little the human race.

So sad that people think first to destroy instead of rehabilitate. Disgusting that ancient landmarks were destroyed because of greed and/or intolerance to the beliefs of others.

All old buildings are not equal, I lived in a 16th century farm cottage growing up. No hydro, no running water, (the pump was 500 ft down the lane) and no indoor plumbing so please pick your "saves" wisely.

Everything in Germany so so sad not to mention innocent civilians!! Yet in a sense the loss of a 2000 yr old Pyramid is Totally Outrageous!! The treasure hunter should of been punished severely!!

It is really sad to see what we have lost thru war and so called progress...these buildings we just witnessed were truly magnificent in architectural design...they were truly artistic and had so much character than new designs today have ...that as true architect..took imagination of building to a new level

#4 is the Crapo building in Bay City, MI. It was beautiful when it was new. Google it. :)

Would like to see more "after" pictures.

I love the old buildings...I love to walk around them and see the beauty of the artist who created them...modern art has its place but new doesn't always mean better...or more shown in the pictures above.

They could have left that bridge standing for the people and built the new one out of sight down below the next river bend.

Glenn, They could have put the new bridge at a different location. The historical bridge was probably near the town square where you wouldn't want trucks or heavy traffic any way. There is always an alternative if one just looks for it.

Thank you. All worth looking at. Too bad they had to be destroyed.

I meant to say, "....craftsmen and artisans capable of constructing these structures."
