As I mentioned before, there was a pigeon problem at the strand, the fouling birds roosting in the marquee. Instead of sealing off the marquee, it appears the decision was made remove all the signs, the upper structure, and leave the overhang.
I regret that I wasn’t around when they hauled away the old signs. Years ago when the marquee was being upgraded, one side was open and unless I’m mistaken there was another marquee hidden inside, a triangular-shaped one pointing out from the building.
Anyway, no more roosting pigeons to carpet-bomb the sidewalk.
