Sun, Wind, Hot Chocolate and Tin Ceilings

What a glorious spring day today!   The wind was a bit snappy, but that’s what scarves (and hot chocolate at Renzo’s) are for.

After a quick business meeting, some friends and I visited the new Home Exposure furnishings store where Label Express used to be.  They have stripped the walls back to the original brick, and also revealed the wonderful tin ceiling that was probably made by the original 1912 owner, Joseph Rodway (’tis a pity it is painted white, but we can’t have everything).  The store is wonderfully bright — especially on a sunny day like today — which is helped by the building owner’s recovery and retention of the original glazing above the large plate glass display windows.

We needed something like this along the Drive and, best thing of all, it is not another restaurant!
