Vanishing Charm

Mrs Valentine @ 22

If only all house name boards were this charming, finding the house you want to go to would have been a much charming and simpler endeavor. Alas these are a dying breed in metros of the new urban India. The one above is from a street in the Richmond Town neighborhood of the southern Indian city of Bangalore. The new wave of mass construction is taking down the charming colonial style and other free-standing houses and changing the urban landscape to one filled with bland and uniform (ugly) high-rises without any character or style.
