I snapped this photo on my way to work this morning. There was a lot of dust.
This used to be the Federal Building – you can see the Coat of Arms of Canada in the top left corner – until a big new shiny one went up a couple of years ago, right around the corner. And I get that it’s progress and it’s difficult to run the government offices from an outdated building and everything, but it makes me sad because it really was a lovely old building.
My city? Not so good in the saving-the-lovely-old-buildings department, I’m afraid. I just wish it could have been used for something, you know? There are some lovely sculptures there which are going to be saved. But it’s a shame that it had to come down at all.
Condos, I think Go figure.
That’s so sad. I do hate it when old buildings just get torn down. It’s much nicer if they try and convert them for a new use.
Absolutely agree, there has to be an alternative, sadly it’s usually money that wins out, isn’t it? Someone paying a lot to put up a new building or something.
And thanks so much for the blog visit!
