I keep my fingers crossed that this Victorian queen will not see it's demise, through the eyes of individuals who care not for her regal stature or her promise to once again be a noble lady. Their twisted view of beauty is not shared by me and I hope they decide to fix up or sell. Most people looking to buy this home will know the amount of work needed to restore. It has been rented for years, allowing it to fall in disrepair, rather than a constant state of repair, that ALL homes in the North require, not just old homes. But so many landlords just collect rents and do nothing to improve the living conditions of their tenants or the structure of the buildings, allowing them to crumble...a decaying memory of pomp and past lives.
Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed on this one...I know my opinion is of my own making and it is not for the liking of everyone, as my own daughter would choose the newer model over the old, but I hope there are enough of us out there that see the beauty and will strive to maintain history and memory of a gentler era.
