Looking back through the notes I took during my visit to this, I see that I described it as a "highly assertive" staircase.

A dream business.
Owners of parking businesses have a reputation for being kind and thoughtful people, enthusiastic contributors to the welfare of their communities, philanthropists.

Look at all that paint.

This is true: As of the time I write this, there is a person in Pittsburgh named handyhandz4u who is trying to sell a Barcol door handle just like this one on eBay on a "BUY IT NOW!" basis, for $49.90 plus $17.51 for postage.

Potato chip scenery.

Potato chip scenery.
I got so attracted to the potato chips that I almost forgot to notice that the giant roll-up door back there is obstructed by some kind of folding contraption, lifted up to form a sort of canopy, under which is an uninstalled automobile windshield.

No shortage of plastic breadcrates in this rotten old backalley in downtown Cincinnati.

Down here in downtown Fond du Lac Wis watching the trees die.

I see where there has been…

"We'll have you voted out if you can't get these powerlines buried," the dainty American rich crying that their aesthetics are being brutally violated by utility poles.

"We'll have you voted out if you can't get these powerlines buried," the dainty American rich crying that their aesthetics are being brutally violated by utility poles.
The new depression has finally halted the U.S. powerline burial drive and personally I'm glad of it, esp. on sunny winter days. Supposedly I'm antiprogress, according to schemers.

It claims to be a "Non Leaker" but don't you believe it.
The oozery of medical wastes and liquefied garbage are plainly seeable and olfactible, all around the bottom corners of the dumpster, in betrayment of its averment about itself.

I'm trying to decide whether I like this architecture & this landscaping!, what's your opinion.
