Don’t be putting ideas in their heads, we don’t want what’s left of Thomas St. nuked

At least we still have the more classic Billys at No. 20 and No. 21, of which this new image is something of a revelation in showing what appears to be the original, very low, non-cruciform roof behind the added parapet of No. 21.

Is this not the same [non-original] roof that’s still on it today?

We know the original roof was much steeper than this from the surviving profile of the return roof, we’re just not sure [yet] whether it was cruciform or not.

The loss of 15-16 as recently as the 1980s is deeply regretable, but we still have most of no. 17 [McGruders] and it looks more interesting every time we see a new image of it.
