The new apartment building on the corner of Gore St and Rose St is taking shape. The plans require that the original factory wall be retained, but sections have been knocked out to facilitate construction. Now some of those sections have been rebuilt but, in the process, bricks have been reused and rearranged. The result is that the remnants of paint from street art have been fragmented and now form an abstract decoration that is most pleasing to the eye.

    Sadly all the paint was washed off the brick two days ago.

      That’s disappointing – it had been there long enough to convince me they were going to leave it like that.
