Agreed...

Plus.... the art they would have brought to town would have been amazing.
Do you recall that they actully had a sales office at the corner of 6th and congress
It was, for it's brief moment, one of the best galleries. in town.
Sigh.
Alas. THey were not really smart about thier $$. But were amazing collectors and hosts. (Bourdon moey from Louisville) They have returned to their original model of renovations and smaller properties.
They do that well!

I missed this post earlier - an actual Fairmont related post in this thread. I know Manchester is having money troubles. But it's going to take a long time to excavate the underground parking levels with a Bobcat.

I have no idea why the quote didn't capitalize wwmiv's post. In the past, the forum had been set so that people couldn't post a one word post. It was a measure to avoid meaningless posts or snarky comments in arguments. We eventually did away with that, but if you try to post in all caps, it won't let you and it automatically makes your post lower case. I'm not sure why it would do it for proper capitalization, though.
