049/2011 R.I.P. blue house

049/2011 RIP blue house, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

How becoming of the European Cultural Capital 2011. Despite protests, and plans how to save and relocate this culturally valuable ‘Blue House’ (built in 1902!) in the centre of our town – down it comes. Money talks, and before we know it, a nondescript concrete monster will be in its place. What a disgrace!

    Our city has become a little better about preserving the past – but many buildings have met the wrecking ball over the years. Sad to see.

    Very sad to see such a perfectly good house torn down. R.I.P. for sure!

    It really is sad, and infuriating, too, as this house could have been saved and relocated elsewhere. I’m glad to here that in Montreal things are better in this respect, Susan.
