I'm glad that they upgraded it and not just closed it down.

Oh, yes, I'm glad they're upgrading, too. Some of our transit lines are in such need of upgrading! Terrific shot as always, Gerald!

Have a great week!

Gee, it looks a lot like Cambie Street in Vancouver when they were builing the Canada Line in time for the Olympics. I'm sure it looks lots better now, just like our streets! :D

What a mess! But then some inconvenience is always needed for Progress.

The first thing I saw was "Primark," which also fits!

We have economic stimulus money in our city; EVERYTHING seems to be in a state of being fixed.

Perfect shot! Seems like a very short renovation time.

Now, that's an original one! And nicely done, too. The muted, almost monotone, look goes well with the dilapidated aura of the scene.

Nice shot. In my area of the country (southern U.S.), we think of cafeteria food when we hear the word 'Picadilly'.
