Remnants of the Past

When old buildings are allowed to stand, old stories stand with them, and places keep their layers, their many ragged skirts, their wild berry bushes.   -- Sylvia Linsteadt 
 
Sylvia pinpoints the charm, the value, the necessity of old buildings. Here in the US, we just don't keep things around very long, especially buildings. We should treasure the ones that still stand. Visit Sylvia's blog sometime to read a story of  things that once were and things that still are at http://theindigovat.blogspot.co.uk/
