face-lift


one of pasadena's - how can i say this.... less attractive? - buildings is currently covered in scaffolding. i have visions of a complete make over, but i'm guessing it's just a paint job or something.

Oh it's definitely LESS attractive! Main reason being because the only reason you ever go there is to pay off stupid traffic tickets - even one's you get when you're on your bicycle :)

I think it's the era that it was built in and that it was covered in cheap imitation of Edith Heath tiles. This seems to have been a popular skin of the era

Visit my recent Edith Heath post and then look at the link for Ambassador college

I saw that posting PA - are you saying that the building used to be shades of brown?? Oh man, that is even worse.
