A large expanse of the northern wing of the South City Markets was cleaned at the end of 2008 by Dunnes Stores, adding to other sections on Exchquer Street which have already been treated to date. The warm brick looks magnificent in the sun.
As can be seen, the southern wing has yet to be cleaned.
The discernable contrast.
A comparison between the north and south wings.
The stripping of redundant clutter also helps considerably in improving the building's appearance.
Greater enforcement of shopfront design guidelines is critical. This recent horrendous fascia mounted on a unit in the unified series of Victorian shopfronts is one of the worst in the entire city. What a shame. So unnecessary.
A delightful complex. Truly one of the great sights of the city.
