No Longer Dull

It was a gorgeous cloudless day here today and the temperature was not bad at all.   The forecast has above zero temperatures showing for the next week, and only 1cm of wet snow.  It’s been a pretty amazing January so far, for those not fond of the white stuff.

This is the new Scotiabank building at Wellington and Princess.  Along the front they have tried to replicate the old building.

The building that says McBride’s is the one being replaced.  Unfortunately, in the 60s, it was given a makeover of stucco, with round edged windows, which afflicts a couple of other buildings in town as well.   Apparently it was too difficult to restore.

  1. Yes, I think if they decided to implode that one, everyone in Kingston would be there to celebrate. It seems to be universally agreed that it’s an eyesore.
