So, as it looks more and more like the Duke of Somorset is going to have to come down (though the story gets more and more interesting), I thought I’d take a second to post the following, a mural on the east side of the building.
I’m actually not so concerned about the loss of the building- it’s nice enough, but I really don’t think that it intrinsically adds much to the street , and something new would be a good opportunity to add to the street and neighbourhood. But I will miss the mural which, as it is on the side that is least stable, is almost certain to disappear, and with it make the street a little less interesting.
In other news: I wish that I had heard about the merchants protest earlier, as I totally would have gone to see what is what, though the idea of a business protest seems on the surface kind of counter-intuitive.
