Brownian Motion

There have been a couple of comments on Bentley’s Brownlie Towers, built in 1969. I went up to see how the extensive renovations are going. Mixed results by the look of it. It’s not just the building that needs work. I wish I’d taken a shot before the scaffolding went up.

    The scaffolding is definitely an improvement. Too bad it couldn’t cover the carpark as well.

    Yeah i’ve only driven around Brownlie once, and it was late, suffice to say, i didn’t feel safe.

    It’s like a little part of the ghetto broke free and moved to Perth!

  3. The car is going to be shifted to the base of Brown Towers as a breakfall.

    I used to go past this place on the bus several times a week and it filled me with a sense of despair so deep and abiding that it took a liberal dose of sugar and kittens to remove.

    Seriously though, it looks like the kind of place a down-on-his-luck fictional character goes to kill himself in.
