And with the places, demolished for the modern times, like this:

It's said, that in West Germany in the 1950ies and 1960ies there were more classic buildings destroyed, due the modernity-delirium, than in the bomb-war in WWII :/

Known these days as “Birmingham Standards”, they were anything but. They were, however, well finished inside and out, and a good deal smarter in appearance than most of the London buses of that period.

Exactly the same thing is said in UK .
Some sort of collective madness overtook town planners in the 60s and 70s and anything 'old' was deemed expendable .
The amount of top quality architecture we lost was criminal , Medieval to Victorian buildings were bulldozed.
