Old Aberdeen building an ‘eyesore’


Sir: While riding on the No. 1 bus recently as we drove past the old building at the corner of Grand Avenue and St. Clair Street, I remarked, “What an eyesore.”

Not really having paid attention to the building’s name, I said someone will be hurt by falling debris who is walking by it.

Then a letter appeared in The Chatham Voice in the Jan. 8 edition written by James Brown, addressed this same building I noticed was the old Aberdeen.

I wonder now who are the owners? I’m sure the state it is in, they won’t sell it and will only get what the land is worth.

Another thing that comes to mind is are they paying taxes on it, as it seems according to the media, we should open our arms to all kinds to help our tax base.
