A Photo Every Day from the Sunshine Coast - Australia

Now ain't that nice.

I've worked in offices that produced buildings like this, so I know the enormous sense of fulfilment one gets from satisfying a client's brief.   I also know the enormous despondency of going past the rotten things for fifty years waiting for them to be bowled over, but they never are.   Heaven forbid, in time they may even be deemed to be of historical significance and preserved in perpetuity.

The telephone exchange was once an "exchange" where operators connected callers to callees.  As automation came along, equipment continued to diminish in size in a never ending spiral sadly destined to ensure that the growth of the system can be contained within the old building forever.

We can't even burn the things down.

Similar eye sores can be found here, lasting forever.
