Not just another brick in the wall...

I spotted this chimney while out walking in my neighbourhood. Attached to a fairly nondescript house, the gorgeous detail immediately caught my eye. Wouldn't it be nice if every building had something like this to make it stand out? Unfortunately rumour has it this house is eventually going to be torn down to make way for a road. Chances of the chimney being saved are pretty much nil. Once again something beautiful and unique is sacrificed in the name of "progress."
