The 3900 block of West 22nd is a quiet leafy one, on a hill sloping down to the Camosun Bog. This beautiful home was already undergoing asbestos removal for my first photo on October 20, 2013. Note the semicircular window upstairs and the sheltered front entry. The home appeared to be well kept.
When I walked by on November 12, a workman was knocking the chimney down. Doom seemed inevitable.
Driving by on the afternoon of November 14, I found that the house was completely gone. Will any new house have the same authentic exterior charm?
