This building sure has known a variety of residents. Interesting story. It has character. Thanks for linking in.

I bet this place could really tell the stories if it could talk.

The building has an interesting history but looks as though it needs a little work if it's going to continue to tell its tale to succeeding generations. Forgotten World Highway???

Makes you wonder about the stories of those who once lived in it.

Hopefully it will be well taken care of now that it's a heritage site.
