So true. As someone now in his 60s I recall when people couldn't tear down Victorian buildings fast enough. As recently as the early 1970s they were tearing down Louis Sullivan buildings in Chicago.

What fascinates me is how many of these depressing buildings got built in the first place they seem to intimidate the senses instead of been welcoming and aesthetic to the eye .
