as far as I know Cybers its a housing association to do with care. and has no place next to a sandstone tenement ever.  http://www.thenewhousing.co.uk/uploads/0517medicaladaptation.pdf
cybers

I disagree with your thinking and it needs weighed up with the possibility of demolished sandstone to make way for another non descript box ... This way the tenement is retained.

Almost as bad as this eyesore  

I mean a carpark next tae this fine building  
calamity

ano Beano whats that aw aboot.. the old part should have been sorted years ago.. that clock has been stuck at that time for years.. but to put and ugly place for parking in such a prominent part of the town is terrible.. All that area near the Cathedral auld Hoose and Celtic Museum should be done up classy..
cybers

Dis it really matter wit time that clocks it no like they can reach it tae feel the time anyhow  
calamity

wid you wear a watch where the hauns were stuck fur twenty years
cybers

I can't wear watches as they gain about an hour a day  
Even my Omega runs fast yet thats a perpetual motion job lol ... The joys of hyperactivity i suppose.

That is actually on the seafront at Margate James.

No wonder it is feckin' dead.
cybers

Jesus that looks like it beat up a brutalist for being a bit saft !
cybers

I suppose its hard to inject character when it has to remain functional for safety reasons.
