Pity the students who look at this

What I believed to be the ‘city eyesore’ depicted on the front page of the Lancaster Guardian (January 8) turned out to be the artist’s impression of the replacement.

Ah well, might as well have two matching eyesores at the gateway to Lancaster – the vandalism of the old Victoria Court opposite it is beyond repair now, so why not?

And let’s face it, the lucky students who will eventually live in the new block will be the only people able to see how Victoria Court looked before it became an eyesore in its own right, as the original outline of the building can only be seen from directly opposite, and not from any part of the approach road – the ‘gateway to Lancaster’.
