Last year, on a rainy Sunday afternoon,  by chance the TLR CLub and I photographed what was left of Casa Mendoza, the Beach and Shore Breeze Motels on Lake Shore Blvd. It turns out it was the only weekend to photograph the motel strips’ infamous Casa Mendoza because on the Monday it was literally gone. The Shore Breeze and Beach Motels were sealed up for another demolition day(s) and now they too have come and finally gone.  Today the Beach Motel, the last of the Lakeshore Motel Strip was razed for condos.
