Circa 1892. This was the last surviving historic landmark in Esplen.
Here is how the building looked when I photographed it in January, 2010:
As you may be able to imagine, I am not happy right now.
It was always my goal to nominate this building as a historic landmark with the city, when and if I became a city resident again. Now, it's too late. It's just an empty, hay-covered lot.
