|♩♪♫♬ Hear the train acomin'|
It's a Perth property that's been for sale for a long time, squeezed in behind several homes with large backyard, and the train track. Someone bought it for cheap, so they say in town! I was interested in capturing a photo on a regular basis, having done a blog for the Habitat for Humanity build in Bala in 2009/10.
I love drive-by shootings, as do many of my Facebook friends, and asked hubby to drive by... again and again!
By February, 2016, there is now an 'Apartment for Rent' sign!
UPDATE: they are for rent as of August 1st! They are called the Dickson Court Apartments. Rents range from $925 to 1150/monthI am fascinated by the high, cement walls and the chain link fence around the parking lot perimeter.
|Here we are, stopped by the train crossing|
There has been some discussion about stopping the trains from blowing their whistles along this spot (Oct., 2014 debate).
The screen capture show the building's location. The building behind it houses seniors, some on fixed income. There is a median across Wilson St. at this spot, and when you come out of the apartment's parking lot, you cannot turn left, nor can you turn left if you are coming from highway #7 (to the north), to get into the parking lot. (You can see this on the Dashcam footage!)
We were surprised to see something being built here. Then we giggled; who else but seniors could live here? You'd need to be hard of hearing, and a train buff, and happy to have the trains passing along the track outside your window. Funnily enough, this applies to hubby! :-)
