Cleaning up the neighbourhood
It's still going on for the sake of commerce - this last remaining, Victorian shop front survived all these years due to neglect, and now there is absolutely NOTHING left of it at all - including the stone, because nobody had bothered to list it.
Bath's Longacre got a bad name when all the West Indians moved into that area you see, which is why nobody cared. This is sadly true. Then it became politic to try to tart the area up, because the property prices would reflect a good upward turn if it was done.
The worst thing is that it was demolished by a friend of mine.
I called him up and asked what was going to be done with it, and he said it was going to be burned - did I want it?
By the time I arrived, it was burned.
It's like I always say - if you want something to survive, ignore it.
