Couple of days ago I went down Fleet Street and some one was up on the scaffolding with a spanner. It looked like it was either being taken down or it was going to be completed so the repairs to the buildings could be done and the scaffold removed some time before the summer season starts. Then yesterday I went down and it still there, just as it was two weeks ago. That is, nothing happening.
Meanwhile round in Victoria Parade a different company ISCA, are quickly erecting scaffolding round possibly the ugliest building on the Harbourside. A quick word with the man from ISCA, "Are they going to pull it down?" No sorry, it wasn't coming down, just repairs and maintainance.
Which is a shame because this building is twice as tall as all the other buildings in Victoria Parade and the windows are too big and it has an unpainted stone front, unlike the other buildings on the block which are all painted a bright colour and it sticks out like a carbuncle on the face of poor old Torquay.
