DALLAS — A building that endured for 88 years in downtown Dallas came tumbling down in a matter of seconds Sunday morning.

The historic Thomas Building at 1314 Wood Street reached the end of the road and it was imploded.

The eight-story structure that has been a part of the city since 1924 was brought down in about 12 seconds by strategically-placed explosives.

Preservationists fought unsuccessfully to save the building.

All the streets surrounding the Thomas Building were blocked off for safety reasons, but small crowds gathered on Young Street to witness its demise.
