Hayward High sophomore and frequent HayWord commentor Alex Harmon took some fine photos of the former La Victoria restaurant at Mission Boulevard and D Street, which was razed last month to make way for the Downtown Loop. This is one of many, the rest are available on Alex’s flickr site. Alex is a prolific photographer, so you’ll probably have to search for “La Victoria” to find them.
Says Alex: “I pass by the La Victoria’s almost every day and saw it get torn down. I had my camera with me and started taking photos of the building. The mural on the building was my favorite mural in downtown Hayward and I think it should have been saved or moved.”
