Hotel Cotton Destroyed on Sunday

The former Hotel Cotton, built in 1911-13 and later known as the Hotel Montagu, was destroyed on Sunday morning by implosion. There's no doubt that the building had fallen on extremely hard times, but Houston has already lost too much of its inventory of historic buildings. Also to follow in its wale are two other buildings on the block, including the former Bond Department Store. Perhaps there was no hope for saving this building, but it's unfortunate to see even more of Houston's history swallowed up in a cloud of dust.
