While out walking today I came across this empty block:
Nothing unusual about that around here. Often I can hardly remember what the house looked like, but in this case I remember it well. I tried to buy it when I was house-hunting in 1997. Here's what it looked like, courtesy of Google Street View:
It had some quite nice art-deco features inside. I wonder if any were saved? At least this time there was no garden to mourn.


  1. Wondering why the house was removed. Is the neighborhood old and decaying? Will a new house be built?

  2. Oh Vireya, this is just what is happening in my neighbourhood. Once the houses were removed and they demolish them every time.
