An Update


At long last, dear readers, an update to my blog. This blog has too long neglected, and I have a treasure trove of photos to post for you.

We'll start off the rains at the end of the drought with an April Shower from the almost Gold Coast, a rather unique four story building, which once was, perhaps a luxurious row house.

It has a lovely gold brick facade with a bay window on the middle two floors and a side entry, along with Roman arched windows at the first floor and a stone base and nicely detailed brickwork, simply defining the building.

So cool! I have never seen anything like this. Too bad it is saddled in the middle of two ugly ducklings of a more "contemporary" homogenous feel.

Interestingly, the building to the left is a rehab/facadectomy of an older building. A much older building, in fact, which mostly still exists - the whole area is comprised of motley additions and renovations like that.

Oh, boy! That's disappoiting. it still looks awful.

The rest of it doesn't look so bad, fortunately.
