I think it is a True Value now.
Looks like they've covered up all that nasty masonry with some lovely metal siding.
Funny Mike, they got a good deal on it, it was in the back yard.
It appears it had been a really classy looking building. Now it looks like every run of the mill farm shed. It's probably a little more weathertight now.
Oh yes, the sterilized look of "tomorrow".
Who wants to look at all that unsightly brick, wood, stained glass, cast iron, and brass
hardware ? I love this modern life. Got my helmet, hearing, and eye protection on now.
It really is our responsibuility to save the children from a lifetime scarred by icky old
Your right Burger, it's our sworn duty to destroy all opportunities for creativity.
The new covering might have been used because while the bones of the building were good, the cost to repoint the whole thing would have been out of this world.
Cost ? Whatever happened to doing things because it is simply the right thing to do ?
Call me extreme, but I think vinyl siding should be punishable by death.
It's maintenance free... like my E-timer.
