June 7, 2010

Another cold, wet, dreary day in the city. A suitable day for this sad little house, the last of it's kind, to be found in the downtown core. Surrounded by towering offices and apartment buildings, it's clinging on the the past. To a time when it shared a fence with another family and the busy downtown lifestyle could only be seen in the distance from the backyard. Today, it has a public transit train run right beside it. The road in front is a major vein into the core, and it's nearest neighbour houses a hundred families. The backyard no longer separates it comfortably from the core, but instead, leads into a dirty alley of broken beer bottles, garbage bins and the constant clatter of delivery trucks.
