We fitted Erley into his walking jacket (The sign said "No Dogs" and nothing about No Cats) and let Max stretch his legs on the other side of the road away from the cemetery before putting him back into the Pleasure Way to have a look around.
We wandered about the downtown corridor starring up at buildings that would be just as at home in Brugge, Belgium or York, England and it made us wonder why we can't seem to build anything half as nice these days. Obviously the costs would be enormous and the construction daunting, but even so, it just seems like we no longer give a damn if a building is special. Just build a great big rectangle and poke some holes in it for windows and you're done. The "screw you" style of architecture. It's a little sad when you see what we could accomplish over a hundred years ago and can't come close to today.
