I must admit, and likely have admitted on this blog, that I'm one of those people who loves to stick her nose into derelict buildings, and who is quite fascinated by weird places like the one above.
If they're in the center of town, so much the better.
This little rundown yard right across from La Maison du Livre, Rodez's most popular bookstore, has intrigued me for years.
Are those rabbit cages in the back? Doors to an old W.C. on the left? Or were they?
Because yes, I am sad to say that this certainly hot piece of real estate is gone and being transformed into something...perhaps a clothes shop or a tea salon, both of which Rodez seems to abound in.
Why should I be sad? The place was an eyesore, and probably impossible to salvage. If I owned it or had inherited it, I certainly wouldn't have the energy to oversee the work necesarry to turn it into a charming town center house avec jardin.
I will miss pondering what it used to be, though.
