Another Pub

Another one on a boozy theme, this one is The Albion Hotel on Hobson Street in town. I've wanted to do this place for a while now, it's such a classic old pub (1873) but looks kind of precarious stuck out on the corner without a neighbour - it almost looks like it's going to tumble into the street. I've accentuated this with some screwy perspective and a definite lean!

I suspect the original neighbour was another elegant old Victorian gone the way of the wrecking ball. Does anyone know what used to exist next door before it became a vacant lot?

By the way, this is another sketch destined for the Urban Sketchers fundraiser exhibition at the Ackland Museum, Raleigh, North Carolina starting the 16th of July. Make sure you check it out if you happen to be in Raleigh next month. (note: that's Ackland not Auckland!)
