The only sections of the former Eames Bakery building in Tamaqua still left standing as of Tuesday were the northeast tower and south side garage addition. But that changed quickly as the day progressed. Demolition by the property owner has kicked into high gear in recent days, resulting in the closing of one block of West Elm Street. The section from the railroad tracks to Washington Street is closed to vehicular and pedestrian traffic and parking. Residents of the neighborhood who've had to make alternate parking arrangements said they're looking forward to a full re-opening of the street when demolition concludes.
