Facades: Dhun Lodge (1906)
It is heartbreaking to report that on Christmas Day Dhun Lodge my favourite building was completely demolished, a year after it was flattened to a shell of its former self.
The flattening, which destroyed the design and details of the facade of the building, was probably undertaken to make easier the building’s eventual destruction.
But it takes a special kind of malice to bring Dhun Lodge down on Christmas Day, right in front of Sethna Agiary (fire temple).
SHAME ON OUR CITY.
