I have something a little different for today. Somerset House is at the corner of Bank and Somerset Streets here in Centretown, and it has seen better days. It dates back to 1900, and was a hotel and pub in its various incarnations. It has stood empty for years, with renovations up in the air due to a dispute between the city and the developer who was trying to restore it, after a slight boo-boo inside during construction work. By slight boo-boo I mean disaster. Supposedly the work will be getting underway again in the not so distant future, but then again, it's been years since that incident and progress has been non-existent. I will be returning here again in time with further details, but for the moment, I leave you with the front of the place. The bare bones of Somerset House has potential to be restored to something better. It just needs the work to be done.
