Notes on the Geography of Great Mirror: Photo 17
A port city needs hotels, and here, a minute's walk from the dead docks, is a dead hotel. Formerly the Terminus Hotel, it was built in the 1880s and is an easy walk from both the harbor and the railroad station, whose tower you got a peek of a few pictures back. You see a wreck? Meet the new owner. He says, "I want to get it cleaned out, and to a stage it can be presented a wee bit, and then see who might be interested and who's around." He continues, "It had been occupied for most of its life, so generally there's not too much in the way of rot or damage.... Once you get the cafes and once you get the accommodation and you get people needing various things and having communities and so on, it certainly just builds on itself." He's right, isn't he?
