Pre-restoration Heather Pavillion at VGH
Here's a great story. The original, century-old Heather Pavillion was gradually penned in in a totally haphazard fashion by modernist 50's construction, due to a need for lots more space and a complete lack of heritage awareness. But, incredibly, the surrounding buildings are going to be removed, and the old structure restored to its vintage grandeur, complete with garden and manicured grounds!

I took a stroll around the site and captured some of the outrageous grafting of old and... well, not quite as old, that has made the original layout impossible to see. It's really going to be something when it's done - though that's still years away.
