I could see the end coming... the Downs was often less than full, and occasionally very empty. This does not signal a long and happy life.
I was a founding resident of the Downs - I asked the Guv to be placed on the waiting list for Caledon land (oh yes, children, in the Days of Yore, demand outstripped supply) and my name on the list came up around the time that the Guv opened the Downs. But, despite what seemed to be an ideal central location, the Downs never regained the traction it lost when the Steampunk Resource Centre left.
