I've shown these photos before but it was a while ago. This was set up by the old committee and it is good. Our recycling efforts are good but for some reason people miss the no plastic bags sign. If I see them, I pull them out and put them in the right place.
Big bins within this room, fire protected, for what goes down the rubbish chute.
Spare bins and telecommunications equipment.
The mail room with 128 letter boxes plus some. I've never heard of parcels being stolen and where they are left is covered by CCTV.
A lift notice, trying to make us appreciate that we are
rich old fuckers comfortable in our lockdown. If you can afford to live here, you are doing ok. The only reason we can is we bought here about 19 years ago for the same price as we sold our Balaclava house.
The rubbish chute with the entrance to meters and taps and communication cabling.
Do I like the new committee members? Not really. A couple of them can be very challenging. Do I respect them for their efforts? Oh yes. While the interior renovation is nearly complete aside from the ground floor lobby and lifts, the exterior needs to be repainted and that will take time.
This is a new photo selected by the Owners' Corporation beside our front door. It is Pelligrini's Coffee Bar. The principle and long term owner Sisto Malaspina was killed a couple of years ago when he intervened in a street incident. Very sad, but until COVID, the business went on.
Ground floor lobby, ready for a makeover.
Post office staff love this table, but it is so out of keeping with the rest of the building. I will mention it to someone at some time if it doesn't disappear. The pictures are all new.
Hand sanitising machines everywhere. I wish more people would use them.
Totally renovated and whether you or we like the new carpet or not, it has been a great job well done.
