 I truly was a war baby.....now this building
will perhaps have a new life....


  1. How cool that the building is going to have a new life. Thanks for hosting! :)

  2. What an imposing building, thank you for sharing, dear Kathe, and for hosting, as well !

    Wishing you a lovely remainder of your week

  3. It looks like a very solemn place, i'm glad it will see use again.

  4. Thanks for everyone's nice comments- BUT I am not the host- Sandee of Comedy Plus is! Have a lovely day!

  5. Old and boxy. That was the way of many buildings back in the day. I hope the building is given a new life with a much needed facelift.

    Have a fabulous WW. ☺

  6. I love these old buildings and it's a joy to see them re-purposed instead of torn down.

  7. That is very exciting that the old building is going to get fixed up instead of torn down. So glad that Lucy found you all. Have a great day.

  8. It's wonderful when old buildings are given new life!

  9. That's really neat. It'd be interesting to see the hospital I was born at. I wonder if it's still there.

  10. I'm all for old buildings being refurbished nice photo

    Have a great weekend Kathe :-)


I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
