A Vision For Downtown Birmingham


Meet Tom Walker, Bayer Property's Project Manager for the soon to be completed renovation of the historic Pizitz Building. Tom has become my new best friend. Since last February, he has cheerfully and patiently walked me all over that building, floor by floor, by floor,  as I photographed the old before it becomes new again. We both laugh now when as I leave, I always say something like, "Tom, I'm sure I have enough photos, and this will be my last trip." Well, we've played that game 6 times so far, and who knows, I might sweet talk my way inside one more time. A huge thank you to Tom, Bayer Properties and Brasfield & Gorrie for allowing me to document the past history of this over 100 year old treasure in downtown Birmingham.

A good friend to have! Maybe when they are done, they'll want to show some of your before and after photos, you never know.

I think it's a great idea, documenting the process of the work.

So here he is a man of mystery. We hope he is never X'ed out.
