Ah, the price of progress!
In order to make way for an extension of the rail line, Mr. Podruly Peccable's Botanical House, a longtime fixture in Caledon On Sea, was demolished on Saturday - following, naturally, a dance.
Above, the Botanical House in all its glory, with one of Duke Middlesea's craft docked.
The dance floor.
As the building comes down, most of the revelers watch from outside - some romantic but foolhardy souls continue to dance as the walls tumble around them. Love in the ruins indeed!
