More on Egypt (Kingston)
« on: April 17, 2019, 11:35:47 am »
These three buildings look to have been of the right age to have existed at the time of the naming of the area ‘Egypt’ (after the Battle of the Nile 1798). It was awful to see them demolished but whenever we drove through it the huge warehouses there made it feel like passing through a deep and gloomy chasm. The Inn had it’s view to the south completely blocked and seemed always in shadow - I always wondered how on earth they managed to survive financially.

Here is a photo of the three buildings in the course of demolition.
This view is dated October 1979.
