Stripped Bare

(migrated from my Tripod blog on 11/05/2011)


Acting on a suggestion from Mr. Point (and because all the other bloggers are doing it), I headed down to 272 Main St this evening after work, with camera in tow.

"Why?", you may ask.  Why, to see the Scott Block, of course!

After several decades of hiding its true face behind ugly white slats*, it has been revealed to the world.  The Scott Block's façade has been laid bare for all to see.

I don't know about you, but I much prefer the original façade over the white slats any day.  The Scott building is going to look great when the restoration is complete.
