Construction crews are working overtime all over Tennessee as new buildings change the skylines of our cities and the landscapes of our countryside. Sometimes this progress destroys irreplaceable pieces of history made of bricks and steel. Raymond Proctor decided he would do something about that by drawing pictures of buildings threatened with demolition. Rob Wilds recently went to Joelton to meet the artist who has been documenting doomed buildings since the 1950's
