Ramp of Doom
The entrance ramp once ran smoothly and seamlessly up to the double doors on the second floor into the QVC. However, over time a step developed where the ramp met the door. This was because building shifting was allow the ramp to drop where it met the building. As an emergency action, steel girders were welded into vertical and horizontal positions to support the ramp. In these photos the red arrow points to an unpainted gap, which shows how much the ramp has dropped over the years.
