Hmm, back down today, again with no obvious explanation for the wide swings. All very peculiar.
Today’s archive picture is another view of the most bonkers building on Grainger Street. My recollection is that it was originally built for a gas company, but for many years it was Wenger’s department store, which closed down not long after I arrived in the area. It was empty for some time, and eventually became a Yates’s Wine Lodge.
It always reminds me of the Addams Family house…
 Note to any crazy furriners: that’s gas, not gas
 And it wasn’t my fault! I didn’t do it! Nobody saw me, etc
