Facelift

Fri Sep 1, 2006 Miss Vicky 

The other night, as the Webgeek and I headed home from the Art against War opening at the Cube, we noticed that scaffolding had been erected outside the former Elmdale Theatre and current Cornerstone Apostolic House of Refuge church. Looks like they are restoring the outside of the building - fixing the stucco at least. I stopped by the site today and asked one of the workers whether they were going to do the tiling as well and he nodded, so I can only assume that means yes. This is a favourite building for many in the 'hood -for historical,sentimental and architectural reasons. I really hope they do it up right.

Some people were moved to reply

I was commenting to amckay last night that I hope they put the sign back up. It always amused me to no end seeing Theatre 1 showing Gospel Music and Theatre 2 proclaiming the next week's sermon topic, etc.

It's looking nice so far--I am a little disappointed in the colour. It's very similar to the hair salon and the furniture place, making for a bit of drab. Something more dramatic would have been fun! ;o)

Miss Vicky, you need to go multi-media! Digital cameras are getting cheaper every day.
