Bill & Gord Nanaimo

  Just found this great shot on a floppy disc!
Digging under the Buckerfields Building in Nanaimo before it was leveled.

 This dig was exhausting....in some spots 6-7 feet deep....floor level was a couple feet above our heads.......throwing the dirt was a real pain....up / out and as far sideways as possible.
This was our entrance at the back of the building...and other than the 'room' Bill made..this was about the only place to stand upright under there until you had a hole dug deep enough to stand in....a hell of a lot of work....I spent days under there and can't recall one bottle I kept from there.
 Yes, those are headlamps, it was totally dark under this building, even during the day.
