Oooh that’s a real beauty! gunter must start organising Billy Hunts around the city – it’d be like Pat Liddy Tours, sprinkled liberally with added nerdism.

In reference to ctesiphon’s picture, passing the other day I noticed the large house in front of the red shed (with the roller shutter) is identical to the Victorian houses on Weaver’s Square. It’s located just across the road from the entrance to the square. I suspect it was the intention to clear all of Weaver’s Square and replace it with these houses, but the developer halted mid-way, hence the survival of the ruined Billies on the square beside otherwise well-to-do housing. Is it any wonder a later picture of these houses from the 20th century shows them in poor condition.
