Covering up

The Mechanics Institute gets a blue bonnet © komadoriIt’s nice to see that the Mechanics Institute Building has received some remedial attention to its roof, to protect the theatre area of the building. The large expanses of blue plastic are not pretty, but it’s better than the building being left more exposed. Of course, if the owner hadn’t removed all the roof tiles several years ago — since when this end of the building has significantly deteriorated — there wouldn’t be a need to cover it over now.
