I’m drawn to transient scenes and objects. This is one such scene.

The flyover in the background is soon to be demolished. It’s only been visible from this vantage point for a week or so. There used to be a theatre in the foreground. It’s just been demolished after standing in this spot since 1899.

If you click on this link you can see how it looked about a month or so before I took these pictures (until Google updates the map picture).

Not sure what will be built on the site though it’s only a matter of time before something is put up where the theatre used to stand. The road is going to be a temporary bus route. So on the count of transient things that’s doing pretty well I reckon.

A good few pictures here of the interior of the theatre a little while before it’s final demise. Here’s a picture and another post on the theatre’s final curtain call.
