  1. Lovely signwriting. I presume this would have been a pub at sone point. it looks like the end wall once had a ghost sign. it’s a shame when these buildings go, they are never replaced with anything that feels so special.

    • I was amazed to discover it had collapsed – shocking that a building could reach such a dangerous state unchecked on a public thoroughfare, it could easily have killed someone.
