A Little Spring Cleaning

Dave wrote about brickwork inside 810 S. Spring on Friday, and today I want to comment about the brickwork on the outside. This shot shows a patch of the exterior that they've cleaned, and it's absolutely remarkable the difference in color. Taking off the structure's built up grime and grit exposes a building that's much lighter in color than I would have imagined. All of a sudden the building becomes bright and friendly, and all because of a little cleaning.

It sort of makes you wonder what other buildings Downtown look completely different than they would with a little loving care applied to the exterior.

Maybe these same people can be hired to get the ground-in gunk off of our sidewalks.
