last of the colonials pt.4

Here's where lack of space and modernization compromises with all that is vintage. Unless you look up, you won't notice the extension. At least it's gray and not too much of an eyesore. Strangely enough, I find it a very interesting structure.

I agree that the extension is ugly. The original building is very pretty. I am enjoying your photo series.

I don't like the extension either. I find it interesting because it fits so perfectly on top (the structure I mean) like Do-It-Yourself Lego building blocks for the lifesize world.

as much as we'd like the owners and authorities to maintain original buildings, we know that's close to impossible. I'm just thankful they added to this one instead of tearing it down and putting up a new, sterile, ugly, low-cost modern one.

interesting mix of old and new...unusual to build the new bit right on top, but as you say , at least the old one wasn't torn down.

The addition is not too bad.

looks like a total mismatch - but somehow it kinda works - the extension is kinda unremarkable - but I guess that the point - so u dont notice it too much

Love the series, this one is a really unusual blend of old and new.
