I have an affinity toward architecture.
This building caught my attention the other day in a well groomed and affluent area of the city because its beauty brings with it a sense of reality.
Unfortunately in my city, when buildings are of no use any longer they are left to die a slow death until they are completely torn down and a new condo (sign of the times) goes up. New is better seems to be the motto.
I wish that our North America society had more respect for things that age for purpose of historical preservation and environmental sustainability. -tM
