Above are some images from the inside of the front area of the old Handy Man shop which is now having it’s second floor removed. Someone in the local real estate business has informed the blog that only the second floor is coming off. Then new 2nd and 3rd floors will be placed on the 1st floor structure. This new structure is to be a steel construction the blog has been told.
Compared to some other buildings in the Junction this building seems to have little grammar of ornament, other than the curved projecting north west corner and the glass imaged above.
The rear of the building is outwardly lean to the Quebec side, which probably part of the buildings problems.
Thanks to the demo team for letting the blog take a few inside images.
