Interesting to have a cage around the fire escape, but I imagine that's a security measure.
There's a number of places I remember looking more or less like this, just like yesterday's pics. Cool in monochrome!
It looks the same because it's the same alley, just down a bit. It's the alley between Colville Street (The Patisserie) and the parking lot behind Macy's (The Bpn Marche).
I enjoy reading your feedback, so feel free to leave a comment.
