Now and Then III

Two identical shots of clergy house, behind the Cathedral; the first dating from 1915, the second taken yesterday. The major difference is the upper storey added to the roof - now the convent of our Portuguese sisters. Another addition is the fire escape, leading up to what is now the sisters' terrace. Perhaps the most embarassing difference is in the general tidiness - the fine garden of 1915 contrasting with the rather miserable collection of pots and tubs (not to mention discarded fireplaces!) that litter the terrace today.
