I've always liked parts of the Hay St Mall in Perth. For the most part they've maintained the old buildings (so much other stuff has been demolished). I always looked at this particular building and wondered what the rooms in the upper floors would be like. I imagined they would have once been grand rooms. They are in the heart of the city and would have once been prime addresses.


I guess we'll never know now. They've succumbed to facadism. A horrible disease that has spread through our city this last decade. I guess I should be happy that they've kept the facade and not built a crappy fabricated structure in its place. But I'm not. Our city looks more like a Hollywood movie set by the year


God knows what hideous ensemble will appear behind it now :o(
