A Glimpse of the Way it Was

As the regeneration of Kings Cross continues these places will be forgotten. I'm not sure what the deadline for this building is or what the plans for it are. I will endeavour to find out and keep you posted. At present this brick building in Pancras Rd still has a couple of businesses in it. Antiques, A mirror store and a gallery.

I actually really like this building. It does have that yesteryear feel to it, especially with all the antiques spilling out on to the pavement and the old school, hand-painted signs.

I suppose the Tailor gave up when blue genes were all the go.

This is a great photo. I hope that lovely brick doesn't get covered up.

A pity when many of these buildings go, rather than be changed or modernized, no doubt the old bricks will get used again somewhere

Somehow this picture has a cool London vibe to it. That guy just looks like he belongs. Love it!

This has the feeling of a photorealist painting. I really like that!

I like your photo. The building has good bones. It deserves to be kept and restored.

The same kind of regeneration is going on all over Montreal!

I passed through Kings Cross several times lately. They really are transforming the area. It's a shame when old buildings go but some of it is/was pretty seedy.
