Chanoso’s

Or at least as it looked, pre-Chanoso’s.

Over at the excelent Windsor Blog, Scale Down, Windsor… the other day I was giving Mark Boscariol a hard time over his choice of stucco to reface the buildings that house Chanoso’s and the Sushi Place next door (the name currently escapes me…). While it was mostly good natured, and Mark accpeted the error of his ways, I promised him last night at the blogger meet-up that I would post some old photos of the buildings.

Here are the buildings prior to renovation in January 2002. I will agree they were nothing to look at, at the time.

Let’s go back to the late 1940’s. Under all that stucco “that looks like ass”, were two grand old buildings that underwent very unsympathetic renovations and refacing over the years.

Just don’t ever do it again Mark. 🙂
