Farewell to the Ream's Turtle: A Provo Landmark

Many readers of this blog will be familiar with the turtle shaped building in Provo that was once a grocery store called Ream's. I'd heard stories about how that building was constructed by making a pile of dirt, pouring cement on top, and then digging out the dirt. I didn't really believe it, but the story turns out to be true. As they demolish the building to make way for more student housing for BYU, an article appeared in the Daily Herald outlining the history of the building. Perhaps you'll enjoy the memory.
