How did they get this so perfect and in the first attempt (I know.. City Hall has yet to weigh in)?! Is it really this easy? As long as that’s not hardie board on the upper level addition.. we’ve seen that happen before. But seriously, this is brilliant, time to give the keys of the city to the genious behind this. As Old Man Aastra mentioned let them restore Douglas in this style and I’d be.. hardly bored at all.


It has been to the City, back in 2018

Seriously? Every single one of the businesses fronting onto Douglas and Johnson have already vacated, except Subway. I was really looking forward to this one.

I think you got the year wrong Rob - that looks to be the most recent Deuce Days just a couple years ago.
