Weight and Stuff Report – 23 June 2011

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[1] company, but for many years it was Wenger’s department store, which closed down not long after I arrived in the area[2]. It was empty for some time, and eventually became a Yates’s Wine Lodge.

Nice turrets

It always reminds me of the Addams Family house…

[1] Note to any crazy furriners: that’s gas, not gas
[2] And it wasn’t my fault! I didn’t do it! Nobody saw me, etc
