weed ‘em and reap

Ever notice how the ClockTower vibrates 
when a heavy truck bounds by?

That’s because only the bearing walls,
the exteriors, are masonry.

Everything else inside is wood. Wooden posts. Wooden beams. 

Giant 10X10’s. 
Like old trees designed to support pianos.

Of course, back in 1886 trees were a bit larger than we grow them today.
