A headline from this morning's paper says it all (thank you, Willy, for finding this):
An old friend is being disassembled for its trip to a new home, where it will be well cared for and put to very good use. First the existing warp is cut off & secured.
Then the frame is taken apart piece by piece.
The pieces are all carried out to the van.
Now a nice big empty space. Must sweep up first.
